About the Author


Writing is dreaming with your eyes open. - Dave Burns *** Dave Burns is just your typical guy with a passion for writing and a mastery of the backspace key. He began writing at a young age (as most writers do), and completed a compilation of short stories and poems at Ottawa University where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Religion and Philosophy. He has been writing ever since, but his passion was re-sparked in the fall of 2009 when he decided to take his craft seriously. Since then, he has been very active in the entire writing process and community. In the spring on 2012, Burns founded The Ottawa Writer's Guild (www.theottawawritersguild.wordpress.com) - a collection of writers in Ottawa, KS dedicated to the love of writing. In addition to writing, he is also teaching Creative Writing in the Ottawa, KS community. Books and Projects: The Movement: A Children's Story for Grown-ups is his third completed work; second complete novel - yet first publication. The sequel, The Movement: Revisited, is the completion of the tale begun in the first installment. Edem's Flight is the third book in The Movement Series. It is a spiritual successor and side story to the first two works. The Movement: Concluded - is a complete anthology including all three works in The Movement Series. His other works include Pieces of Me and a million little gods: the clearwater chronicles. All his books are available in paperback at most online retailers, as well as on Kindle.
