About this author

During a sabbatical in Paris, David attended Le Cordon Bleu, earning certificates in pastry and cuisine. Recently married, he and his wife Anne have several furry children, but no human children as of yet.

Interests include cooking, weather forecasting, martial arts, writing obviously and Japanese swords.
