Born in Lincolnshire, David was mainly schooled in the Isle of Ely, studying also in the Fens and Black Forest. He now lives in the Midlands.

Early in an insurance career David learned there is no policy to cover the change within a year from being a single man living in London to a married one with two kids living in Quito. He has written creatively since schooldays, producing romances, memoirs, young adult and literary fictions, without until recently understanding the discipline and extra hours needed to bring works to market.

You can read daily snatches of biography in the Dave Daze feature, with extracts from diaries and other writings selected mainly at random and edited more for length than possible interest.

David can also be found on Facebook.
