His hobbies include sport, reading, theatre and, of course, writing.He started writing seriously in 1986 and his first book, Sparky’s Return, was published in 1987. Twelve books have been published to date – all of them mystery/adventure stories with lively characterisation and a liberal dose of humour.
David has also produced several resources for teachers, including three collections of Primary School Assembly Stories and several photocopiable resources to encourage children to develop their own writing. Each story comes complete with an identified theme, a closing prayer, follow-up activities and suggestions for subsequent assemblies. The stories are lively, thought provoking and often humorous.
