Hello.  I am Dave Kiersh and this is my blog.  I was born in 1979 and grew up on Long Island in Suburbia USA.  I went to college in NYC and  received a Master's Degree from the City University of New York.  Later, I worked as a Children's Librarian for the Boston Public Library.  I also taught courses at Emerson College and Tufts University.  I have been writing and illustrating my own books for over ten years.  My first full color book Dirtbags, Mallchicks and Motorbikes was the winner of a Xeric grant/ award.   In July 2012 I published my book Afterschool Special under my Teen Pulp imprint. There is also an essay about my comics in The Comics Journal.

I can be reached via email: dkiersh(at)gmail(dot)com.  Publishers and business inquiries can reach me at 631.987.7787 

In addition to working as a librarian and writing and drawing comics, I am an avid collector of books, memorabilia and comics.  Links to my blogs for other interests can be found in the column to the right.  Thank you for visiting!
