David Bowmore was born in 1972, on a wintery night with the sound of thunder and the flash of lightning welcoming him into the world.
Forty-five years later he started writing fiction. After a steep learning curve, his short stories and flash fiction began to appear in various collections.
Before he started writing, he had been a chef, a teacher and landscape gardener.
He has lived here, there and everywhere including Brisbane, Australia and the Suffolk coast, but now lives in Yorkshire with his wonderful wife and a small white poodle.
He tends to write thrillers and mysteries as well as stories with a touch of the supernatural about them. He focuses on character and the oddities of being a human being, sometimes with humour, sometimes with dark reality.
Many authors have influenced him, some but not all are P.G Wodehouse, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Elmore Leonard, Patricia Highsmith and Agatha Christie.
