Dave wrote detailed plot outlines (5,000-15,000 words) plots for other writers to develop into novels. As Dave says, “They did the real work of developing the outline into a novel. I don’t consider my involvement to be that of a real co-author, but my name goes on the cover, so we’ll list them here.” These include:
