David N. Birman, MD is the creator and author of Maggie the Whale. David currently lives in Tennesse but grew up in California. He credits his parents for teaching him a love of reading, sailing and nature.

David originally wrote Maggie the Whale as a bedtime story for his grandchildren. He now hopes that even more children will love Maggie and want to learn more about her and our other ocean friends.
