David began writing fantasy and science fiction at fourteen. It took another ten years to be succesful. He also designs and builds websites for friends.
He has co-written for many years with Jack Everett, and together, as David Coles & Jack Everett and as Everett Coles, they have explored the local stars, killed off countless Roman legionaries, found out what happened to King Arthur and the Round Table, got the lowdown on how medieval lives were lived and hatched a few thriller plots as well as creating a new detective on the block - DI Stewart White.
He has attended workshops run by both of the UK writers, Terry Pratchett and David Gemmell (now, sadly, both lates
); a process requiring late nights and copious alcohol.
He was a founder member of the international Historical Novel Society where alcohol is optional.
He would like to be taller and possess more hair, he would like to be fitter and leaner, he would like to be richer
but such things were not meant to be and by and large, he is content with the way things have worked out.
David lives with his wife and a pet laptop in God's own county - Yorkshire in the United Kingdom.
