David Watkins lives in Devon in the UK with his wife, two sons, dog, cat and two turtles. He is unsure of his place in the pecking order: probably somewhere between the cat and the turtles.

David's most recent book is The Devil's Inn: a novel set on Dartmoor during a fierce snowstorm. Has the Devil really come to Devon?

He is now working on a new stand alone novel, set in Exeter. He hates referring to himself in the third pers

Authors behaving badly

This is the first blog I've ever written. I hope someone is reading it so I'm not just shouting into the wind, because that would be crazy...

Twitter is currently my self promo tool of choice and there is a wonderful, supportive network of writers on there. Many posts make me laugh out loud and others make me really angry (usually right wing propaganda spreading hate and vile lies).<... Read more of this blog post »

A supremely silly, enjoyable romp. Full of pop culture references (lose a star if you're under 40), lots of gore and laugh out loud moments. This is the first comedy book to make me laugh out loud since early Pratchett and that's high praise. This is ...more
