About the author

David Kudler

I am a writer, editor, and publisher living just north of the Golden Gate Bridge with my wife, author/teacher Maura Vaughn, our author-to-be daughters. And our (apparently) non-literary cats.
Currently, I run my own small publishing company, Stillpoint Digital Press. Since 1999, I’ve overseen the publications program for Joseph Campbell Foundation. I have edited three posthumous volumes of Campbell’s unpublished writing and lectures and overseen editions of nine additional titles, the most recent being the third edition of the seminal Hero with a Thousand Faces.
I have just finished Risuko, a young adult historical adventure novel (whew! lots of qualifications on that!) set in Japan during the Civil War era. The sequel, Bright Eyes hits the shelves on May 5, 2022.
I’m a passionate reader of mysteries, fantasy and whatever else I can get my hands on. I am a story addict.
I also have a really healthy respect for heights. (In one of Terry Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching books, the heroine realizes that it’s not the heights that she’s afraid of: it’s the depths. I understand that.)
And that’s me, at the moment.
