Dave is a novelist, a screenwriter and a really excellent parallel parker.
He lives in Melbourne with his two crazy daughters.
His debut novel, The Barista’s Guide to Espionage isn’t the first novel he’s written. Let’s call the other ones practice runs.
A prolific writer, he spent a lot of time trying to break into the publishing world*.
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 with Fahrenheit Press instead.
