About David

Full time professional writer. Currently developing Fifty Pink Elephants with producers in Toronto and Dublin, with Dean Cundey pencilled as director. I co-wrote The Fastest Forward for Comic Relief, a feature starring Jerry Hall, co-founded the London Screenwriters' Workshop, and am co-author of the Doc Chaos comics series, novella and TV scripts. My sci-fi novel Hybrids was called "a stunningly clever novel" by The Times, and Stormteller. A cli-fi novel, led to my presence on the Hay Festival's first ever cli-fi panel. I have written and edited comics and graphic novels, including for Marvel, HarperCollins, Titan Books and Macdonald-Futura. I also work/have worked as a commissioning editor for various book publishers, write journalism and non-fiction books.
