David Salkin

David M. Salkin is a graduate of Rutgers University with a degree in English Literature and Communication. He’s been writing for as long as he can remember.  Whether it was short stories, articles for trade publications, or novels, David has always been armed with a pen. With over a dozen novels published in several genres, his work speaks to a wide audience.

Dave lives in Freehold Township, NJ where he has served as a member of the governing body since 1994.  During his 20+ years of public service, Dave has served as Mayor, Deputy Mayor, Township Committeeman and Police Commissioner, as well as liaison to various Boards and Commissions.

A bit of a Renaissance Man, Dave is a Master Diver, Chef, Oenophile, and traveler. In a perfect world, he’d go diving, catch dinner, and then prepare it for family and friends pared with a great bottle of wine in some exotic location. Dave’s motto, “Live every day like you think it’s your last, because one day, you’ll be right.”
