David Barber is from Manchester, England but now lives in Crieff, Scotland with his wife, Lisa, their 2 daughters, Imogen and Melissa and their West Highland Terrier, Archie.
He wrote a long time ago but left it on the backburner when his children were born. He was inspired to start writing again in 2009 when his friend, and editor of Thrillers, Killers 'n' Chillers, Col Bury, invited him to send something into the magazine. His story (all six sentences of it) was accepted and went on to win a Bullet Award. That little accolade gave him the confidence to get back to it.
Since then, his writing has appeared in many online magazines as well as in e-book and print anthologies.
Reading wise, David is an avid reader of crime and horror. Favourite authors are Simon Kernick, Matt Hilton, Michael Connolly, Linwood Barclay, James Herbert and Richard Laymon to name a few.
David is also the editor of The Laughter Shack, where he masquerades as BJ Titzengolf, helped by his loyal assistants, Joanne Kallott and Mike Oxlong.
He is currently working on his first novel.
