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.
David’s adventure is writing books!
What inspires you to write?
Anything to do with the paranormal inspires me because of personal experiences,however real life experiences inspire me as well.
Tell us about your writing process.
I like to give thought to what I'm going to write. Before I put words on paper I have to be sure that I have chosen an apt title. Once I have my title, I build the book around that.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I usually imagine that I am interviewing my characters, or watching them as if I'm watching a movie, so I can take notes to try my best to show what is happening in the book to get my readers involved in it.
Who are your favorite authors?
Emily Bronte, J K Rowling. I could read Wuthering Heights over and over again.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to self publish because I think that type of publishing is the order of the day now.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think self publishing will become the most popular.
