About Dave Riese

Born in Arlington, MA, I graduated from Bates College in Maine where I majored in English Literature. During my junior year, I studied in Oxford, England and travelled throughout Europe. I began writing fiction during a four-year enlistment in the US Air Force.

After working in the IT departments of several Boston financial services companies, I retired in 2012. Upon retiring, I told myself that it was time to get serious and to write full time.

I’m the author of Echo from Mount Royal, a novel about a young woman’s strange courtship in 1951 Montreal. I am currently working on a fictional memoir.

I live with my wife, Susan, north of Boston. We have four grandchildren in Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
