David Waine was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, in 1949. He is the youngest of three brothers, all of whom went on to become teachers like their father. It was during his teaching career that he developed an interest in writing, initially plays, and his adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' was performed at the Cockpit Theatre (the forerunner of Shakespeare's Globe) as part of the Globe Theatre restoration in 1991. He took up novel writing after leaving the profession, and his first published work, 'The Planning Officers' appeared in 2011. He has followed this up with an epic fantasy trilogy, 'A King's Head', made up of the individual novels: 'Usurper', 'A Sovereign's Honour' and 'A New Queen Rises'.
The first of his crime thrillers, 'Chained in Time', was published in October 2011. It is the first 'Rutter Book'. The second in the series, 'Rutter's Reunion', followed in January 2012. A third book is planned for the near future. He published the first part of a sequel trilogy to 'A King's Head' in the summer of 2012. The book is entitled 'The Ancient Realm' and the trilogy will be 'A Queen's Heart'. He is now working on Part Two.
