Banker-Turned-Author Rides E-Book ‘Tsunami’ at 99 Cents a Novel

David Lender has wanted to be a writer since college. Now after a 25-year career in finance, he’s become a top-selling author of novels going for 99 cents each on Amazon Inc.’s Kindle and Barnes & Noble Inc.’s Nook.

Lender, who majored in English at the University of Connecticut, outlined his stories on planes and in cars during his work in mergers and acquisitions at Bank of America Corp. and other Wall Street jobs. The result is three self-published tales of suspense set in the financial world that became bestsellers in the “thriller” category of Seattle-based Amazon’s electronic bookstore.
