D. B. Carter lives with his family on the edge of a small town nestled amongst the rolling hills of rural Devon, England.

Christmas Yet to Come by D.B.  Carter
"Yet again, DB Carter proves he can get inside the skin of an ordinary, struggling person; more, the reader is also drawn into the world he creates, a world which - for many - is sadly all too realistic.
