My Bio My ambition when I was a kid was to become a vet and get married and have kids, in that order.
By the time I left school I had given up on the vet part so I drifted from job to job for many years.
I did the other two though. I have a lovely wife (fifteen years married and still going strong) and four lovely children who are far from perfect but I would not swap them for all the atoms in the universe.
I have spent the last twenty years trying to manoeuvre myself into a position where I can earn a residual income without spending any capital. This has not been easy and I am still a long way off, however I think I am taking a big step in the right direction right now.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
David travelling back to the time of the the Vikings.
Although it could just as easily be a biography, or another novel with different characters set in pre Roman Britain, or perhaps even something a bit random like "101 great something or other"
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
What? Give publicity to already successful authors like Caroline Lawrence or Terry Pratchet??
Oh no it doesn't say they have to be successful.
OK erm, ME obviously.

My mum's poetry. She doesn't know abut Blurb, maybe I should tell her.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Well its all about personal taste isn't it.
I have read three copies of "A short history of nearly everything" by Bill Bryson the first two copies wore out and fell to pieces! One of them was a hardback!!
