David Purse is a young adult, middle grade, and picture book writer. While waiting on his acceptance letter from Hogwarts (which has still to come), David earned a degree in business and worked in the very boring financial industry before finally putting pen to paper and letting his imagination run wild.

Being a relentless insomniac, you can usually find him typing away into the early hours of the morning, welcoming the sunrise with his tenth cup of coffee. In his spare time, David enjoys reading until the lines blur, laughing until it hurts, and sleeping in late. He lives in a small town in Scotland and loves the constantly cold weather.
