David on Social Media
Every day, I post comments on my Facebook author’s page about books, movies, TV shows, and music that I’m really excited about. I talk about what I’m working on, what’s happening in my life, where I’ll give a talk next, the authors I had a chance to spend time with, and thoughts that occur to me about what’s happening in the world. We have a lot of fun discussions. You can also follow me on Twitter, where I share additional news and upcoming author events.

Writing a Comic Book
After my six-part Captain America: The Chosen comic-book series was published, Marvel Comics asked me to write a two-part series about another of their iconic superheroes: Spider-Man. Because comics are a visual medium, I looked for a way to highlight Spider-Man’s colorful costume. For Captain America: The Chosen, I had used Afghanistan’s bleak mountainous landscape to emphasize Cap’s brilliant red-white-and-blue appearance. For Spider-Man, I decided to use the contrast of snow.
