Writer Bio

Dav is a teacher of English and writer of speculative fiction. He was born in Birmingham, in the United Kingdom, in the early 1980s, and grew up in a multi-cultural family that valued creativity, hard-work, and self-expression. From a young age, he showed an interest in both the arts and the sciences, and he went on to study English Literature and Education at university. After graduating, Dav continued to work in a number of fields, both in education and beyond, leading to his career in teaching.

His writing, beginning in earnest after his degree completed, drew on his interest in literature which explores intersections within society, the importance of fantasy for exploring the human experience, and his fascination with the potential of new technologies, incorporating and interpolating variations of these into his creative work, often in the context of a thrilling adventure or a thought-provoking mystery; Dav’s website, lit.maleo.uk, features a collection of novellas, short stories, and micro-fictions that showcase his skill at creating immediately vivid and immersive worlds and compelling, complex characters, exploring themes such as humanity’s conception of time, the impact of artificial intelligence, and the boundaries between reality and fantasy. Each story is written with a careful attention to detail and a keen sense of pacing, drawing readers into its world and leaving them with a sense of wonder and awe.
