David was born in New Zealand, but during a working holiday in Australia in 1984, he decided Australia was the place for him, and has lived here ever since. In early 2017, he and his wife moved to Tasmania, and settled in the beautiful Huon Valley with their two labradoodles. David is a podiatrist by trade, and enjoys bushwalking, photography, gardening, and bee keeping. His inspiration to write comes from his love for trees and wildlife, and his memories of childhood exploration. He includes a richness of history and culture in his writing that has come from extensive travels, both within Australia and overseas.
