I have been writing for longer than I care to remember, both fiction and non fiction, and started out by writing business articles and columns.

The reason I write is because I enjoy it. It is as simple as that. If other people happen to enjoy the results then that is a huge buzz, and a great encouragement to write some more!!

At the moment I am concentrating on my Chester based detective, Inspector Walter Darriteau, (see The Murder Diaries and The Sound of Sirens) and my philandering man, Gringo Greene - (see The Life and Loves of Gringo Greene) though the truth is that, like many other writers, I always have several projects under way at any one time.

Thank you for visiting my page and I hope you like at least some of my stuff.

Have fun,

David

They are both finished and going through final edit and they should be out some time this year. The first one is called "The Legal and the Illicit" and that will probably be out in a couple of months.

After those two, I am still interested in writing a sequel to "The Life and Loves of Gringo Greene" which is about a philandering man who finally meets his match - but it's all about time - having enough of it to get the job done!!

Stop watching TV!! - is the best advice, so far as that's concerned. (less)
