NE David begins Spring Tour
Hello and welcome to my website.
My name is Nick David and I'm an author based in York. 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. Here's what Pauline Kirk, a member of the Pennine Poets and the Editor of Fighting Cock Press, had to say about it.
‘Vivid settings, crisp writing and a highly relevant story make BIRDS OF THE NILE a gripping read. Egypt’s great inheritance and chaotic present are brought convincingly to life, and the politics behind the uprising deftly sketched. Against this background, a haunting love story develops to an unpredictable conclusion. I have always admired N.E.David’s short fiction. His long-awaited first novel does not disappoint.’
I've now been given the go-ahead for a second novel and I'm pleased to say that THE BURDEN will be appearing sometime later in the year. Watch this space.
In the meanwhile, I'm setting off on a Spring Tour of some more of Yorkshire's bookshop's. For my full itinerary, go to my Events page.
The other week I was lucky enough to get an interview with international bestselling author S.J.Watson. You can read the results in Writing Life,
I'm also working with presenter Elly Fiorentini on BBC Radio York. Once a month she hosts Book Talk and we chat about the latest in books and try to recommend some good reads. I recently promised a review of THE CATCHER IN THE RYE by J.D.Salinger which is now on the Book Talk page.
