Author Details

Where I Live
Florida
L. Davyd Pollack was born and raised in South Florida. He attended the University of Florida and with a lot of work, and even more luck, eventually graduated. Back then, he had no designs of ever becoming a writer and if the truth be told, he wasn't much of a reader either. He had every intention of becoming a contractor and building buildings in Florida until he retired.

After fifteen years in the construction business, Davyd felt as though there was something missing in his life, but what that something was, eluded him. He became disillusioned with his chosen profession and spent the next five years trying to find a new source of fulfillment. First, there was real estate, then there was mortgage brokering, after that, there were a few miscellaneous entrepreneurial adventures, but no matter what he tried, nothing seemed to click.

It was while struggling to make one of his business ventures work, and failing miserably at it, that Davyd decided to try something outside the box. He started to chronicle his life in a daily log, or in today's vernacular, a blog. This was at a time long before blogging became an acceptable form of behavior.

One day while writing a particularly maudlin entry, Davyd had a déjà vu moment and remembered writing about something similar years before. He was curious as to the similarity and decided to hunt down the old verses. After spending hours on end reading his own diary, he ultimately came up empty. He never found what he was looking for, and he even forgot what it was he wanted to write about in the first place. All would be lost forever, which sounds like a bad thing, but in reality, it wasn't. It was actually a gift, and for those who believe, a gift from God. You see, while his search for phantom prose turned up nothing, his search to find the one thing in life that satisfies his need for accomplishment, the thing he loves to do, and the only thing he wanted to do, was finally over.

Davyd spent nearly a full workday reading his own writing as though he was a spectator, and he enjoyed every minute. True, the daily log was about him and therefore contained a built-in bias, but the fact still remained, he enjoyed writing the log and he enjoyed reading it. From there it didn't take long to figure out what he wanted to do with his future. The metamorphosis from construction worker to author began, and the story continues . . .

He currently lives in Florida with his girlfriend, three kids, and five cats.
