D.V. Williams was born and grew up in the southeast of England, excelling throughout his education at daydreaming. After eminently sensible careers in industry and teaching, while spending any free time writing songs and performing in bands, he finally sat down to write the stories that had been taking over in his head and never looked back.
The author is married with two sons, who are now both taller than he is, and lives in southwest Wales. They share their home with two cats, a neurotic collie, a crested gecko, and an ever-growing collection of musical instruments.
