Meet the author

David Meredith Schmaltz currently resides in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina and is the Senior Pastor of Valley Community Church in Weldon, NC, a sister city very near by.  David grew up in Michigan and gained a true love of the outdoors. However, he has lived in North Carolina for the past 33 years enjoying the beauty of the South.  His adventures in writing children's fiction are fairly new and quickly becoming a true joy.  The Maple Tree Story is his first book and, Lord willing, the first of many more.
