I am left-handed, and with that comes a responsibility. I grew up in New Jersey in the 60s, a time when schools practiced atomic bomb drills and society was trying to convert left-handed people to right-handed. I can vividly recall my first day of fifth grade when the teacher handed out shiny, new, sharp scissors to all the right-handed students, but gave me a dull pair with rounded ends. She did the same thing the next day, even though I raised my hand as a right-hander. However, that year, I wrote a science fiction short story called “The Wire” and got an A+. That experience sparked my interest in writing.
After completing a Bachelor of Science in Marine Sciences from Stockton University in New Jersey, I conducted research on bluefin tuna as a field biologist before landing a job at Mystic Marinelife Aquarium in Connecticut. It was there that I realized the potential of computer science for this industry and others. I obtained postgraduate training in systems programming and computer science and had an impressive career in Information Technology in New York City.
Now, I’m embarking on a journey of writing science fiction, picking up where I started in that hallway with a pair of dull, rounded-end scissors. I’m excited about my work in progress and hope you are too. As a voracious reader, I once stopped reading due to disappointment in the way several authors ended their stories. I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t read another book until I published one with a killer ending. My debut novella, November Seed, is a page-turner and lives up to that promise.

Just read your first book, November Seed… I’m hooked and want more! No toilet breaks, no food, just Keep writing!
Thank you Ginny. I promise you will be the first on my pilot list.
I read your book “November Seed” in the last two days. It was great! Looking forward to the next one.
I am so glad you liked it, Allison. I miss Matt, Dan and the crew—poor Oscar…. (my favorite scene). I have received a lot of feedback from readers to continue the saga. Yikes! I did not write it for one. That said, I have been humbled into thinking of a sequel and came up with a plot that is equally as twisting as the original.
I will be on WLFR.fm (91.7 FM – South Jersey) on September 3rd, around 4:10 PM talking about November Seed and most likely insights of the story as well as the music I listen to when I write.
In the meantime, I have been working on the editing of Silversides (see Works in Progress). It is equally a tour of nature on another planet as it is an invasion. All my characters are named after seaweed and Nori is my protagonist and star.
I just finished November Seed and it was awesome! Finally something different from the seemingly same re-hashed stories out there. This was new and refreshingly unique. I was hooked from page 1 and literally didn’t stop until I was done. Of course this means part 2 may need to be written ( or not. ) Makes one want to know what happens next. Many kudos Mr. Nadas, you have a special talent and vision. I will read Europa next. I’m sure it will be just as great as November Seed. I will recommend your books to my friends.
First, thank you, Brandt, for reading my work. I will admit, I loved this story and althought I did not have a sequel in mind, the pressure is now… I was a bit concerned with a sequel because I sort of boxed my characters into a corner… That said, I did come up with a twist deservingly equal to how book one ends. 😉 I have been working on a full lenght novel, Silversides, and need to get that out, first. I have (4) more treatments in the works and will let my readers decide which one I start next. Thanks aagin, the feedback is so welcomed and serves like fuel to push me onward.
I came across your page as my son is also named David Nadas. He is also left handed. He doesn’t study tuna but he lives on tuna salad on rye bread. He’s 34 years old and a poker whiz. Just thought you’d find this amusing. We are in Toronto. Good luck with your writing. Sincerely, David Nadas’ mother, Janet-Lee
There is hope for him yet! LOL. I love tuna on rye…. toasted……
Nadas is a Hungarian name. Is your family Hungarian?
Yes, my Father was Hungarian, my mother French. Decades back, my friends always thought I had a butler and maid when they called to ask for me.
