Dave is a novelist, a screenwriter and a really excellent parallel parker. He lives in Melbourne with his partner and two crazy daughters. His debut novel, The Barista’s Guide to Espionage isn’t the first novel he’s written. Let’s call the other ones practice runs. A prolific writer, he spent a lot of time trying to break into the publishing world*. Dave isn’t a full time writer. He just has too much spare time on his hands. By day he’s a corporate stooge, by night he’s a (two finger) typing fool. He’s also an award winning filmmaker. A title that sounds much more impressive than it really is. He won a best comedy screenplay and cinematography award for one of the short films he wrote and directed, though at the time he didn’t really know what cinematography was. A completed screenplay is currently doing the rounds.
