David Ozab is the father of a nine-year-old future academy-winning actress. He is also a writer. His current project is a chapter book series in progress titled Adventure Anna. It’s the story of a second grader who’s a cross between Indiana Jones and Junie B. Jones.

His first non-fiction book,  A Smile for Anna, tells the story of his daughter’s cleft diagnosis and surgery, her unrelated motor-speech disorder, and her irrepressible spirit.

He is currently seeking representation for both his fiction and non-fiction writing.

Excerpts from A Smile for Anna were published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Tough Times (Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing LLC, 2011), and Not Afraid: Stories of Confronting Fear (Civitas Press, 2013). His writing has also appeared in Catholic Digest, Errant Parent, and Australian Mother and Baby. He has appeared on KEZI 9 News and Catholic Broadcasting Northwest’s “In Person” with Dina Marie Hale. He guest posts on a wide variety of parenting, faith, and special-needs sites, writes regularly on his Fatherhood Etc. blog, and is actively seeking freelance opportunities.

He holds a PhD from the University of Oregon and has worked as a composer, a college instructor, and a web designer. He lives in Oregon with his wife Julia, their daughter Anna, and two ornery guinea pigs named Buddy and Knight.

  1. Thanks for putting another face on apraxia – we need to get the word out. My son is 5 and has Down syndrome and suspected apraxia. I’m always searching other people’s stories to find what has worked and what hasn’t. Your writing is very absorbing – looking forward to reading more.

    Thanks again,
    Alyson
