David writes crime thrillers where the emphasis is on action and the characters. He particularly enjoys creating villains. He spent twenty years working as a firefighter and draws on this experiences when writing. He also worked as a ‘door supervisor’ in Manchester, encountering a variety of colourful characters.
David found a publisher for, Brotherhood, the first in the Mason & Sterling series, in 2014. A highlight of his writing career so far was when crime fiction blog, Crime Thriller Hound, featured him alongside James Lee Burke, a long time writing hero. They also gave him a pretty good revue – he assures me this wasn’t written in early January.
Crime Thriller Hound A powerful and violent first chapter precedes a superb opening 100 pages, the best I’ve read this year. And the pace never lets up in this cat and mouse thriller, evocatively set amid Manchester’s threatening underworld.
