Invaluable: The Secret to Becoming Irreplaceable, by Dave Crenshaw

I represent new and established authors of non-fiction. My areas of interest include: computers and technology, how-to, popular science, natural history, current events, health and fitness, photography, design, business and personal finance, travel, gift books, series titles, and books of western regional interest. I do not handle fiction, poetry, or children's books.

Prior to founding Fresh Books in 2005, I was an agent with Waterside Productions, where I sold more than 1000 books.

Before joining Waterside in 1989, I worked variously as a coffee jerk, cab driver, and book clerk and buyer at the famed Boulder Bookstore in Boulder, Colorado.

I hold a B.A. in Creative Writing and Literature from U.C. Santa Cruz (1985), and studied playwriting and dramaturgy in the Professional Theatre Training Program at U.C. San Diego.
