Welcome to the website of author NE David

Hello and welcome to my website.


I've set out on a journey to become a nationally recognised author. 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 are a couple of reviews about it I picked up during a recent blog tour.


This was one of those reads that really made me feel a deeper connection than I was expecting. It really is a novel with a lot of heart and will make you think. Michael Blake's journey is a powerful one. The characters, plot, and pacing were all spot on and really helped to elevate the novel. A superb literary novel. Texas Book Nook


This is a great example of a beautifully written literary novel. The level of writing is really higher than most other things I’ve read as of late and I think that is expected of literary fiction. I liked the political tones in the story. It really brings it to another level and Michael’s suspicions and the people he meets really heighten the story for the reader. I don’t want to give anything away, but this was a great novel on just about every level. A Life Through Books


Meanwhile, I'm continuing to work 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. The show next goes out on Monday 1 September at 6.30pm when we'll be discussing books by old-fashioned, traditional novelists, BRIDESHEAD REVISITED by Evelyn Waugh and A TOWN LIKE ALICE by Nevil Shute. My written reviews of both books are now available on the Book Talk page.


And in Writing Life I've been thinking about how writers can improve the way they promote themselves with a post entitled The Author as Character. 


You can find out what else I'm up to on my Events page.
