David A. Natale has written since he was a kid in Cleveland where he comes from an Italian and Jewish family background.

He received his BA in Theatre Studies from Yale and an MFA in acting from the University of San Diego and the Old Globe Theatre. David then spent eight years in New York before moving west.

Most of Natale's career has been as a performer and playwright. His one man show, "The Westerbork Serenade," tells the true story of actors in a Nazi transit camp in Holland. It won a Seattle Times "Footlight Award" in 2007 and toured the Netherlands in 2010 (www.westerborkserenade.com).

His latest play, "Around The World in Less than 80 Days," which follows reporter Nellie Blie's 1889 global race, will be produced at Key City Public Theatre in 2022.

After years of struggle in performing arts, Natale makes the transition to the literary milieu. He now seeks a publisher for his supernatural mystery thriller about a pizza driver: "Pizza Stories: Deliveries from Beyond."

David lives in Seattle with his wife, step-son and dog. He works as an actor, stage-hand, pizza man.
