  10. David works for the NHS in England as a clinical IT systems programme manager. He is based in Reading, he has 5 children and 6 grandchildren, so it is a wonder where he gets the time to write, but write he does. His first novel, The Oui Trip, a dark comedy about death, drugs and rekindling love, set against the backdrop of a road-trip in France, has received many good reviews. When David isn't writing he rides his Harley, reads (a lot) and enjoys listen to, and playing, music.
