Contains intrigue and mischief!

About Dave Corrick

I was born in Christchurch New Zealand and have, for a number of years lived in Auckland.

My qualifications are in engineering; however from the years 2000 to 2009 I dedicated my time to creative computer programming. I essence I developed software to run on the Windows platform and then marketed it.

It required some application of imagination to develop software and in 2009 I used this same imagination to write my first book. This was something I have always wanted to do and quite frankly, once I started I enjoyed it immensely.

Close by to where we live (that's my wife Julie, and me) there is a delightful bush lined stream where we walk most days. It's a beautiful natural oasis in suburban Auckland. This stream was where with a little imagination the two "Louie the Bee" books were "born".

The "Louie the Bee" books are available from Amazon, and Barnes and Noble in hard copy form and a few sell. However I must say the greatest pleasure I gain from writing is seeing the pleasure others get from reading the stories I have created. I feel I have achieved this when I see how the "Louie the Bee" books, that are here in our Auckland libraries; are always in demand. Seeing this has been the absolute true pleasure of writing for me.

Subsequent to the "Louie The Bee Books", I was motivated to write the two "Love Sweet Love" books, by the despair I feel at what man is doing to the planet and how inevitably we will bring about our own demise. In reading "Love Sweet Love" you will know what I mean!

Currently "Love Sweet Love" is only available in eBook format from Smashwords and Amazon Kindle.

What an absolutely beautiful story. It's just magic. The second book is even better in my opinion. Well worth a read. It is something truly different.

Review by: Helen Scharma on Sep. 19, 2011 :
Louie The Bee introduced me to a world of characters that live by their courage, humour, determination and thoughtfulness. The stream and bush setting of the story captured my imagination and carried me to a world that I was sad to leave.The detail of the story line is amusing, exciting and at times touching and sensitive.
From chocolate cake with red wine to where a community respects and lives by the true values in life. This - the story of “Louie The Bee” is a great read and one that I did not want to end

Here is a fabulous product and I am sure it would make an excellent film by Pixar or Dreamworks as an animated childrens' movie that adults will enjoy too. Great imagination Dave. Well done.
