Over the past two decades, he has designed and illustrated hundreds of books, from children's books to adult daily meditation books.He has also written (as well as illustrated) several children's picture books, including Nate's Treasure, Winter Wood, Starry Night, and Home Field, (Lothrop, Lee & Shepard/William Morrow.) Nate's Treasure was a Golden Kite Award finalist in 1992. As these books are set at the farm where he lived, and the characters in the books are his two sons, he often tells people "My books are stories from home." He has visited dozens of schools throughout the Midwest talking to children about art and writing, and sharing his stories. He has also served as judge for the Minnesota Book Awards annual competition (design category.)David's newest book, Life on the Edge, though not a children's book, is also a story from home. It is a book about parenting a child with AD/HD. Offering information, hope and joy, Life on the Edge reflects the education received in raising a severely emotionally disabled child. He has shared his message with radio audiences from coast to coast, and Canada, and served as a panelist at the Minnesota's Children's Mental Health annual conference.David Spohn lives with his wife, two sons, a dog and two cats, near Lindstrom, Minnesota.
