BIO

DavidQ Hall-headshot.jpg

The Rev. Dr. David Q. Hall is a retired Presbyterian pastor living with his beloved wife, the Rev. Maxine, their daughters, son-in-law, grandson, and two dogs in Oceanside, California.
   
David is a lifelong civil rights activist, environmentalist, and social justice advocate. His parish ministry was with congregations across the country in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin and California, in diverse settings including metropolitan, inner city, suburban, medium-sized, and small cities, towns, rural areas and the North Woods.

Before obtaining three advanced degrees in theology and religion, his original college major was anthropology and archeology, specializing in Native American ethnology. Even more, he not only studied, but was directly involved with Native Americans in clubs, on reservations, participating in their powwows, and even helping their revival of traditional culture and dances that had been stripped from them by harsh public agencies. He advocated and lobbied for Native American rights, traditional way of life, and self-governance on different state and federal levels, including in Washington, D.C. 
   
Among the numerous gifts and honors he received from Native American persons - from ancient basket-weaving works of art, to ceremonial sash, to the award of a registered name among them - there are none he treasures more than the stories and legends.

Reader REVIEWS

5.0 out of 5 stars Picks you up, hurtles you along and doesn't let go until the last word.

 

I hadn't read any of David Q Hall's fiction prior to reading Cellaring but what a read it turned out to be!
We are straight into the action and, when you're going at such galvanizing speed the excitement means you don't let go which is exactly what happened to me. I gulped this thrilling novella down in one sitting. I just couldn't close it until I'd finished.

But it's more than a scintillating thriller. It manages to be poignant and profound too. Without giving away spoilers it speaks about issues which are vitally important to us all.

Thoroughly recommended.
 

Mark T, (United Kingdom) Review of Cellaring

I just finished the latest (3rd) instalment in the Death Most Unholy series.

I definitely recommend reading all the books as the characters develop and carry on their stories.

Fast paced and easy to read!

Looking forward to Death Investigated

Review of The Brave Birch/El Abedul Valiente

 

The story is heartwarming. Nice touch to include Spanish text.

Beautiful illustrations.

Highly recommend.
