Author Biography

My name is David Duane Kummer. I'm a freshman in high school, with a published novel and a collection of short stories.

I live in a small, river-town on the Ohio River in southern Indiana. Along with taking care of younger siblings (I have eight total), I make time for writing in between school and sports.

I've been writing since I was young, with As Trees Turned Away being my first published work and She being my first published novel. Along with writing, I am an avid reader and watcher of all things horror, and enjoy writing reviews on them for others who might want to know my opinion on them.

When I'm not writing, I enjoy talking with my hilarious friends and amazing girlfriend, spending time with my loving family, watching movies, and working out to burn all of the calories I get from binge-eating Hawaiian Rolls. Those things are really addicting, am I right? I'd rather get payed in those than money.

Anyways, have a fantastic day :) Take care.

My Abigail by David Kummer is an intriguing and sometimes confusing story. Abigail has a secret and everyone but Caleb seems to know what it is. After Caleb learns the secret, he wishes that he'd never found out the truth.

I had mixed feelings about My Abigail. The story started out really well. Kummer had me going crazy wondering what Abigail’s secret was. I thought for sure I had it figured out, but I was not even close. The truth, I thought, was a little unbelievable. I had questions as to why Caleb could not figure out at least part of the secret. I even thought that perhaps Abigail was just a figment of Caleb’s imagination.

Kummer did a great job at coming up with a plot that is so complex and unique. It is one that I have never read before. I actually had to reread the end again to make sure I understood what happened. Even now I am not sure I got it completely. At times Kummer’s description of what occurs in the story is a little vague. This made it a little hard for me to follow and know exactly what was happening. In the end, Kummer goes back and fills in some of the blanks. This answered some of my questions but also created more. I can see this being a good book for a book club to discuss. If you like a book with plot twists, then this may be the book for you.
