David Duffy has spent 30 years
advising U.S. and multinational corporations on how to position themselves and
their brands in the financial, consumer and labor marketplaces. This experience turned out to be good
practice for writing fiction.
Along the way he helped bring the Antiques Roadshow to PBS and income tax to Poland.
Last to Fold is his first novel. He has completed a second Turbo Vlost thriller, In for a Ruble, also to be published by St. Martin's Press, and is at work on a third. He and his wife live in New York’s Hudson River Valley.
The good-looking pooch in the picture is a ringer. His name is Apollo, he's a Great Pyrenees, and he was rescued by Duffy's nephew- and niece-in-law, with whom he lives happily on Martha's Vineyard. He treats every house as if it were his own, however, and is big enough (at 100 pounds plus) to get away with it. So when he asked to sit in on the photo op, nobody objected.
The painting is by a contemporary American artist, Duncan Hannah. It's called "Spies." The sculpture, also contemporary, is by John Kaye.
