Welcome to the website of author NE David
N.E.David at Kings Lynn and York Lit Fests
Hello and welcome to my website.
I've set out on a journey to become a nationally recognised author and I want to share that experience with you. Last year I took a big step forward with the publication of my debut novel, BIRDS OF THE NILE. Part political thriller, part love story, it's set against the background of the Egyptian revolution of 2011.
This year I'm working on a second novel and trying to broaden my profile. That campaign has received a major boost with the news that I've been offered a regular spot on BBC Radio York where I'll be joining presenter Elly Fiorentini once a month to talk about the latest in books and to recommend some good reads. The show will go out on the second Monday each month at 4pm. I'm devoting a page of the website to it called Book Talk. This month we'll be discussing THIS BOY, a memoir of childhood by politician Alan Johnson, and THE LAST RUNAWAY by Tracy Chevalier.
I also have an active programme of Literary Festivals and I've recently appeared at both Kings Lynn and York. You can out what I'm up to next on my Events page.
And why not keep up to date with what I'm doing on a daily basis? At present I'm in between various trips abroad and the writing's come to a halt. To find out why, read Writing Life.
