About the Author
David still works at 72 years of age, three days a week, teaching art subjects, and also has a business in stained-glass art, which he has been doing for 33 years. Writing has always been his love, and this book began about 30 years ago, having been edited many times over. It began through interest and curiosity about the dark ages, and he chose another take on the life and times in which people lived and behaved, trying not to equate necessarily with the present day too much. There are many elements that could be labored over, but he wanted to keep a certain pace in the events, leaving the reader's imagination to fill in the gaps.
