Dave is a USA Today bestselling author, screenwriter and a really excellent parallel parker.
He lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife and two crazy daughters.
The author of the Eva Destruction & Charles Bishop series, Dave spent a lot of time trying to break into the publishing world*.
The kick-ass (or arse, depending on how cultured you are) heroine Eva Destruction came about because they were the books he wanted to read. A sassy, smart, badass, and funny hero that can leap off an exploding building while making a smart-ass quip. He couldn’t find a novel from the Bond girl’s perspective, so decided to write one. With explosions. Eva Destruction was born.
The Charles Bishop series was inspired by the hugely popular Bishop character from the Eva series and wanting to know more about him. That and the need to write more explosions. Let’s be honest, it’s mostly about the explosions.
He’s also an award winning filmmaker. A title that sounds much more impressive than it really is. He won a best comedy screenplay and cinematography award for one of the short films he wrote and directed, though at the time he didn’t really know what cinematography was. A completed screenplay is currently doing the rounds.
Dave’s overflowing bookshelves include many works by Douglas Adams, P.G. Wodehouse, Dashiel Hammet, Raymond Chandler, Janet Evanovich, Ian Flemming, Zadie Smith and John le Carré.
*Well, not actually breaking in. Stealing blueprints, buying a van, assembling a crack team of heist experts, overriding security systems while suspended from the ceiling just seemed like a lot of hard work. He’s decided to publish books instead.
