The World of David Haldane - Journalist, Author and Nonfiction Writer

About David Haldane

A master nonfiction writer, Haldane melds the personal and reportorial to explore the human condition, especially his own. As a long-time journalist, award-winning radio broadcaster and former Los Angeles Times staff writer, he is a keen observor of the way things are whose passion for stories has led him to many continents. Much of Haldane's work utilizes his own experiences as mirrors reflecting the larger, insanely complicated and gloriously colorful world in which we live. When he's not dancing with elephants, he can often be found at home in the California desert or the Philippine jungle helping his Filipino wife raise their young son.
