David Lummis is a nationally known consumer market analyst whose opinions are frequently cited in major media. The Coffee Shop Chronicles of New Orleans, a three-part serial novel, is his first book. After completing Part 1, David was delighted to meet consulting editor Sarah Flynn, whose editorial guidance has greatly enriched Part 2. As a manuscript editor at Houghton Mifflin, Flynn worked with Pat Conroy on The Prince of Tides, and she is co-author of Voices of Freedom: An Oral History of the Civil Rights Movement from the 1950s through the 1980s. Born and raised in Paducah, Kentucky, David attended the Sorbonne and graduated from Yale with a degree in French. He now resides in the “Paris of the South” with his life partner, Csaba Lukács.
