David Reed grew up without cable, but still turned out all right. After completing nearly half of a computer science degree, he realized that programming computers is way less interesting than watching them turn evil and murder people on television. With that in mind, he set off with his then-girlfriend for Los Angeles, where he got his break working on Battlestar Galactica, subsequently writing the comic book miniseries Battlestar Galactica: Final Five. Since then, he has branched out from robot mayhem to general mayhem, writing the Syfy Original Movies Lake Placid 3, Lake Placid: The Final Chapter, and The Boogeyman, along with the stories for the Supernatural episodes “Hammer of the Gods,” and “You Can’t Handle the Truth,” several Supernatural tie-in novels, and the feature adaptation of the video game Company of Heroes for Sony/THQ.
