Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
David started writing as a hobby in the 1980s. He interviewed Lynne McGranger, the Australian actress from Home and Away, when she was appearing in pantomime in Torquay, Devon. Surprisingly, his interview with her was published in People's Friend, a UK magazine. Since then, he decided he would spend more time on writing.
He wrote his first poem, God's Garden, which is featured in the Best Poems and Poets 2012.
Though he’ll forever be an Englishman at heart, he now lives in Mexico with his 3 dogs, Chula, Sooty, and Benji.
If he’s not working on his latest story, you can find him walking his dogs or watching Discovery channel.
David says that he and Bear Grylls have something in common: adventure.
