David Hicks grew up in Harrison, NY (about ten miles north of the Bronx) and attended Nazareth College of Rochester (BA), Saint Bonaventure University (MA), and NYU (PhD). He has been an English professor for many years, but in his forties he decided to stop writing about writers and start being a writer himself.
Since then, he has published many short stories and written a debut novel, WHITE PLAINS, published by Conundrum Press in 2017. (For details and updates, join David’s newsletter at the bottom of this page.) He is currently hard at work completing a new novel, called THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO DANNY.
David is a full professor at Regis University in Denver, where he also co-directs the Mile-High MFA program. He and his wife Cynthia, along with his children Stephen and Caitlin, live near Denver and enjoy hiking with their dog Rosie and meeting for big breakfasts at Jelly.
