About the Author
David Weston was born in London and educated at Alleyn’s School Dulwich where he was taught by Michael Croft and became a founder-member of the National Youth Theatre. After National Service, where he was commissioned in the Royal Artillery, he won a scholarship to RADA. He has been a working actor for more than fifty years, doing everything from starring in Hollywood films, many seasons at the RSC and the National, appearing in twenty nine of Shakespeare’s plays – to Eastenders and Doctor Who. His first book, Covering McKellen, described as ‘Hugely enjoyable’ by the Daily Telegraph and ‘Salty, evocative and informative’ by the Daily Mail, won the Theatre Book of the Year Prize for 2011. Dodger - Down Under, his first novel, follows the adventures of Jack Dawkins, aka the Artful Dodger, following his transportation to Australia. David lives in Pimlico with his wife and dotes on four grandchildren, a cocker spaniel and Chelsea FC.

As a Dickens fan I liked the idea of bringing together characters from different novels. It was an easy and enjoyable read and difficult to put down. More of the same please.Published on 20 July 2013 by A. A.
This is a great idea for a novel: what happened to the Dodger after Oliver Twist. But it's also a very good book. Read morePublished on 16 July 2013 by J. M. Levine
