David Hopkins writes a little bit of everything. His work includes the short story collection We Miss All the Great Parties and the burlesque memoir The Wild and Wayward Tales of Tammi True. David has been a regular contributor to D Magazine, Smart Pop Books, and Fanboy Radio. He has written op-eds for the Dallas Morning News and Chicago Tribune — as well as comic books and graphic novels in a variety of genres.

At this moment, David is working on his first novel.

Dallas Observer recognized him as “Best Local Comic Book Writer,” and the American Library Association honored his work in their annual “Great Graphic Novels for Teens” list. His essay “How a TV Sitcom Triggered the Downfall of Western Civilization” was a editor’s pick with over three million views. It has been translated into several languages and republished in other countries (Denmark loves David), and it’s a Pocket app “Best of” selection.

For 12 years, he taught English and Creative Writing at a high school where he also served as a writing coach for UIL competitions. He now works as a copywriter for Saladmaster.

David lives in Arlington, Texas with his wife—artist and designer April Hopkins, daughters Kennedy and Greta, and his dog Moose. David once wrestled a mountain lion.


"Hopkins creates a world in which strange things happen and we're very glad they do." - Bret McCormick
