Born in Derby in England, on the day before mid-summers day, David Peter Woolliscroft was very nearly magical. If only his dear old mum could have held on for another day. But magic called out to him over the years, with a many a book being devoured for its arcane properties. David studied Accounting at Cardiff University where numbers weaved their own kind of magic and he has since been a successful business leader in the intervening twenty years.

Adventures have been had. More books devoured and then one day, David had read enough where the ideas he had kept bottled up needed a release valve. And thus, rising out of the self doubt like a phoenix at a clicky keyboard, a writer was born. Kingshold is David’s debut novel and Tales of Kingshol

Hi there.
Yes, Kolsen is the pirate king and led the raid on Kingshold. Why? You’ll have to wait for later to find out. And by the way, you read them in the right order. In fact Of Buccaneers and Bards will be included in the upcoming Tales of Kingshold, Book 1.5 of the series which is a collection of other similar novelettes.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it and signed up for the mailing list. That’s a high recommendation. Why don’t you sign up to be an Advance reviewer in the future and you’ll get the new books in advance.
And thanks for asking my first ever question!(less)

I'm not going to review this book because, well, I wrote it and there's the potential to be a little bit biased. But I will post updates here from time to time about how the publishing process is going.

Right now I'm feeling confident enough to say Io
