David Curry Kahn always knew he was going to achieve success as a writer. From his high school days through his WWII experience as journalist, then in Los Angeles in radio, writing for such dramas as The Whistler and others. After moving to Portland, Oregon working as a freelance writer and magazine editor, he took a career change and went into the business world of sales and sales management. However, he never lost sight of his goal of writing a novel that would inspire young people to have a continuing positive outlook, to always believe in themselves and understanding that failure- repeated failures- are only stepping-stones to success. Success always comes to those who perservere. Lord Buxton said, “with ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance all things are attainable.” Now, semi-retired with time to give to writing again, he has produced the book he always dreamed of doing. It’s proof that you can achieve whatever you want to if you believe you can and take the time to do it.
Kahn lives Southern California with his wife Zeta; he has two beautiful daughters and thee adorable grandchildren.
