About The Author

D. Feist is a career elementary school teacher originally from Pennsylvania. As a lad Feist explored in the outdoors - fishing, hiking, camping, gardening, and hunting in his spare time. At an early age Feist enjoyed writing for school assignments. In his tenure as an elementary teacher David taught every grade from K-8, with many years taught at the K-1st, 3rd, and 5th grade levels. Between 1989-2010, Feist focused much attention on reading and writing instruction. Also in that time Feist read hundreds of children's books for themes to share with his students.

Feist began actively writing in 1995, he recollects, and began to illustrate and release many of his works in 2013. Feist emphasizes nature, family, loyalty, personal responsibility, conservation, natural science, American history, natural history, values, beauty, and humor themes throughout his poetry, short stories, novels, photo essays, and illustrations.
