About Me

David Jackson Ambrose’s debut novel, State of the Nation (2018) was selected as a finalist for the 2019 Lambda Literary Award for gay fiction.

David describes his work as “a focus on marginalized people and the ways identities are shaped by a confluence of the prison industrial complex, the mental health factory, and the police state apparatus as it collides with gender, sexuality and the construct of race to impose disability and hierarchy as part of the design of American capitalism.”

David’s new novel, A Blind Eye (2021 NineStar Press) explores the gradations of domestic abuse in both parental and same sex relationships and the opacity of perceptions of race.

He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (Africana Studies), and holds an MA from Saint Joseph’s University and an MFA from Temple University.
