Boyer Back on Booksie- Hunting for Prey or Praise?

David Boyer returned to Booksie as his alias Darren Oberhaus.
Is he looking for trusting authors to plagiarize or is he looking for the adulation he appears to crave?

Previously on Booksie Boyer posted stories plagiarized from Lisa Morton and Ferrel "Rick" Moore.

Easy as 1, 2, 3...See David Boyer Steal a Story! (Email Evidence)

I'd like to thank Ferrel "Rick" Moore for sending me the emails from his recent blog post:

First step, find good hunting ground for poaching. 
 Join a writer's group, especially ones that critiques stories.

Second step, bait your trap.
Send out stories for review.

Third step, wait for the unsuspecting prey to arrive.
Other writers of the group send their stories to you.

It's just that easy!

Below is the rest of the email exchange:

What happened next?
Boyer deleted Ferrel "Rick" Moore's name and attached his own to the story.  He then published Moore's story as his own in various magazines, on various websites, and in over 9 books he personally published.

Boyer could have gotten away with it if it wasn't for the fact Ferrel "Rick" Moore published his story in the anthology Beyond the Porch Light and Other Tales in 2002.

Serial Plagiarist David Boyer Writes A Screenplay

The screenplay is not plagiarized, but that's not necessarily a good thing.   For example, the characters are flat, and the dialogue is implausible.

See the below excerpt from his screenplay where Brian Davis speaks with attorney Chris Tapley.

I'm safe from David Boyer's acts of plagiarism? After all, he interviewed me... he likes me!

History shows you are not immune from becoming David Boyer's victim just because it seems he likes you.

Ask Ellen C. Maze-
David Boyer published her interview in two books.
(please click to enlarge)

Despite warnings of Boyer's continued plagiarism, it appeared Ellen believed Boyer's words over the evidence; after all, she thought she knew him.

Following her Christian beliefs, Ellen told Boyer "I don't care what's past and repented of. It's gone as far as I'm concerned."


How did Boyer repay her kindness and faith?

He plagiarized her!

Under his alias George LaCroix, Boyer still published Ellen's story in the following two magazines even after it was discovered he plagiarized her on Storymania.

Please support a real author and treat yourself to a few of Ellen's books.


Publishers and editors beware - Boyer may still be submitting stories under  aliases.

Every Day Fiction and Bewildering Stories both published stories by George LaCroix and removed them once they became aware LaCroix was actually the serial plagiarst David Boyer.  These two magazines are not alone since Boyer, as George LaCroix, was published in three other magazines as well.

Is Boyer stealing from H. H. Morris (1937-2008)?

Post Summary:
  • How could David Boyer get written permission from an author to publish his story in Lost Souls Magazine if the author passed away almost 3 years prior to the magazine's creation?
  • David Boyer plagiarized Homer Howard Morris' story Goddess River Is Not Pleased for his screenplay The River Goddess?
  • Boyer, under an alias, seeks funding on Indiegogo for a screenplay containing plagiarism?

David Boyer's Lost Souls Magazine published it's first issue in 2011 and published Homer Harold Morris' story Goddess River Is Not Pleased in 2011, years after Morris' death.

Excerpt from Homer Harold Morris' Goddess River Is Not Pleased:
(hit control F, then search from the story by title or author)

Excerpt from Boyer's The River Goddess:
(Published in From Fiction to Film in 2011)

Boyer's version for sale on Lulu:


Boyer, under an alias, is seeking funding on Indiegogo for his film project which contains plagiarism of Morris' short story:
