David Bowman
Born in 1956 in the East Anglian Fens in England he moved to Nottingham to study for his business degree. In line with the current myth of the time he met, courted and married a local girl and they have now been married for over 35 years.

They still live within 10 miles of Nottingham and have two adult children no longer living at home. Their daughter made them proud grandparents in 2009, agian in 2011 and for a third time at the beginning of 2014.

Following a career in software development and IT management David was forced to give up work in 2005 to look after both his wife and daughter both of whom were suffering from different life threatening illnesses. To fill the time and take his mind off of the domestic and financial issues David eventually turned to his love of both photography and writing. Seven Sisters and The Carthaginian Empire are the first products of the latter.

In 2009 his then publisher went bust and undaunted, along with a fellow author they formed their own publishing company. David also writes under several pen names and you can find those links over to the right.

He continues to employ his IT skills in a web design and database access capacity.
