A lover of fantasy and science fiction, comics and classic movies, David's life has been drenched in pop culture and storytelling. From the moment David read a Grant Morrison comic at a lonely tennis court as a teen, there was no option but to weave stories of action and reality bending adventure. Everything from Conan the Barbarian tales to Julian May's classic time travel adventure series "Saga of the Exiles" through to PD James murder mystery books have been a powerful influence.
As a writer, David seeks that sweet spot between fast moving action and character moments inside a vibrant fantasy world. Follow on Twitter @redlantern2051
