Product description

About the Author

Despite suffering from chronic asthma since a toddler, David enjoyed an idyllic childhood of fishing with his father and watching copious movies at the family's cinemas. This wonderful lifestyle came crashing down upon being sent to a city college, where relentless bullying made his life miserable. Many children, under similar circumstances, may have contemplated suicide whereas David fled home to his family, to return as a day student instead of a boarding at the college. At the age of seventeen, his life changed dramatically when his father died and David took on the running of the family cinemas and drive-in theatres. Puberty and not coming to terms with being gay plagued David who had to keep his sexuality secret in his small home town. In 1980 David sold his theatre interests and turned his hand at starting up a thoroughbred horse stud, owning a racehorse that was entered into the prestigious Melbourne Cup until disaster struck. The farm was sold, leaving David with very little savings. He turned his hand at motel managing, hotel and restaurant cooking, strawberry picking and even spent a season as a 'ganger' at an orchard during a fruit-picking season. Disaster struck again in the form of a near-death experience that left David home-bound. That's when he turned to creative writing as a living, winning accolades for short stories and awards for stage plays he wrote upon moving to Queensland. Living at the Gold Coast hinterland, he has now turned his talents onto novel writing, his first two proving to be popular literary works. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
