Mass Comm alumnus publishes novel

July 29, 2011

David Fernandez ’93, of Winter Park, Fla., under the pseudonym D.H. Cermeño, recently published a new novel, “Rising Sunsets.”

“Rising Sunsets” is a semi-autobiographical novel that takes readers on an enlightening journey through the mind of David Fletcher, a bright and ambitious young man who is determined to conquer the world and prove his unsupportive father wrong. When reality strikes and nothing works out as expected, an unusual opportunity to go to Japan to teach English to schoolchildren presents itself.

After graduating from Loyola with a degree in broadcast production, Fernandez worked in Japan as an English teacher for a year. Upon returning to the U.S., he earned his MBA degree from Crummer Graduate School at Rollins College. He currently works as a database marketing manager in the hospitality industry.
