David Schickler, born July 30, 1969 in Rochester, New York, USA, is an author and motion picture writer and producer. He is the co-creator of Banshee with Jonathan Tropper. He is known as the author of "the Smoker" in the short story collection Kissing in Manhattan (2001) and Sweet and Vicious (2004).

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Schickler graduated from McQuaid Jesuit High School in 1987, Georgetown University with a degree in Foreign Service in 1991 and from Columbia University in 1995.

CareerEdit

Schickler began working as a private school teacher at The Harley School in Rochester, New York in 1994 and wrote in his spare time; he completed two novels during this period, but faced repeated rejection from publishers.

In June 2000, The New Yorker published his short story "The Smoker" in their debut fiction issue and, Schickler said, "my career took off all in one very exciting week." On the strength of "The Smoker," Schickler received a 2-book deal with The Dial Press and Paramount Pictures bought the story's film rights, planning to develop it as a vehicle for Natalie Portman; the author was able to quit teaching and devote his efforts to writing full-time. In 2001, he published Kissing in Manhattan, a "well-received" short story collection that featured "The Smoker," followed by his first novel, Sweet and Vicious, in 2004.

He is the co-creator of Banshee with Jonathan Tropper. They are Executive Producers and writers for the series. Tropper has announced that they will write all ten episodes of the first season, which is expected to air in early 2013.

Personal lifeEdit

In 2009 Schickler coached Mcquaid Jesuit's Modified Cross-Country team which went on to win the Jesuit Championships in New York City.
