David C. Hughes
David C. Hughes defies the premise that engineers can’t write. With almost four decades of writing experience and more than 25 years of technical writing and editing experience, David left his full-time corporate job in 2013 to launch his writing career.
A former youth leader and deacon, David’s life is resolutely defined by his pursuit of God, and his desire is to convey God’s love, joy, grace, and healing through his testimony. His blog site, “David C. Hughes, Writer,” broadcasts his latest take on what it means to be a Christ-centered man, husband, father, son, brother, and friend in these exciting and challenging times. His God-ordained book, The Epiphany of Joy, and his picture book, Melted Clowns, illustrated by his 17-year-old niece, Emilie L. Hughes, both won the Texas Association of Authors 2015 Best Book Award.
Originally from the town of Maine, New York, David now lives near Aledo, Texas with the loves of his life: his wife, Mary, and his daughter, Hannah. At last count he also has two dogs, a dozen fish, five chickens, a frog, and countless fire ants.
