David Athey’s students at Palm Beach Altantic University have more than one reaon to listen when he talks about writing. Athey is not only a professor, but also a published novelist.
An English and creative writing professor, Athey wrote the novel “Danny Gospel,” the story of a young man searching for romance and heavenly glory no matter what he most endure.
The inspiration for the novel came from an interesting man Athey encountered.
“I met a man who believed that mosquitoes could be used by God to help him fulfill a mission,” Athey said. “I knew that was unique enough to propel a story.”
