Born in Sunderland many years ago I went to college in Bradford and trained to be a teacher, a profession I followed for 34 years. Then I worked in a bank for 6 years before retiring completely. I remained in Yorkshire and that is where I write. I have always had the ambition to write and eventually began in 2009 and have completed ten novels since then. I blog daily on http://david-latkinson.blogspot.com and there are also short stories, poetry and recipes as well as commentary on the writing process.
