Whether it be his superhero artwork, attending the Maryland College of Art and Design, or using his voice for on-air news and commercial spots written for local radio, D. L. Smith is a storyteller, having honed that craft growing up in the 1960's in and around the nation's capital, cutting his teeth on superhero comic books and the classic sci-fi tales from Asimov, Heinlein, Burroughs and Niven, among others and watching as much classic sci-fi television as he could get away with, even past his bedtime. (Star Trek always came on too late, so he often snuck out of bed and hid next to the couch to watch it, never realizing his parents were aware the whole time. There was always Lost In Space, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea, Speed Racer and Jonny Quest on Saturdays.) Utilizing his eclectic experiences and mixing today's headlines of politics and religion inspires him to craft action/adventure, sci-fi tales of Humankind's tumultuous path toward the road to enlightenment.
