David lives in Ashby de la Zouch, land of Jaffa Cakes, Ivanhoe, the National Forest and Adrian Mole’s Cappuccino Years. He is a physicist and, after years of being a research scientist for the Government, now works for the Institute of Physics. Married, his wife eventually got fed up with him talking about all the books he was going to write and told him to get on with it or shut up.
Writing science fiction in a universe he has been perfecting for decades, his stories are devoted to plot and characters. Influences range from Asimov, Niven-Pournelle and childhood science fiction through to the new style Battle Star Galactica. Having learned his trade with Writing East Midlands, he is now a member of the established Leicester Writers Club.
In 2015, his debut novel We Bleed the Same was shortlisted for the East Midlands Book Award – a general award, which shows the cross-genre appeal of his writing.
David fills his time outside of authoring and his full time job with raising two children, being a visiting fellow at Nottingham Trent University and walking two tiny dogs.
