David was born in London in 1955 but grew up in Radlett in Hertfordshire.
He was passionate about writing from an early age. English was his favourite subject at school and while he went on to become a businessman, he always harboured a dream to be a professional writer.
He published the thrilling, dark and sometimes humorous Half a Pound of Tuppenny Rice in 2016 which received highly favourable reviews. In 2019 he has published his second thriller Death in Deia, set in Mallorca, which has been very enthusiastically received by readers. For more than 30 years David has visited the island and in more recent years has been very inspired by the Tramuntana mountain range, which led to the creation of the plot.
