About David Crookes

David Crookes self-published his first novel BLACKBIRD in 1996. It was quickly picked up by Hodder Headline, now HATCHETTE GROUP, and became a best seller in multiple editions, as did THE LIGHT HORSEMAN'S DAUGHTER and SOMEDAY SOON and other titles. Now most of his many novels are available as ebooks. David was born in Southampton, England. After living in Canada for twenty-three years he moved to Queensland, Australia with his wife and children. He has worked in many occupations, as a farm hand, factory worker, lumber-mill worker, costing surveyor, salesman, contractor, oilfield and construction industry executive and as a small business owner. He now writes fulltime. His travels have taken him to many parts of the world and his particular passion, apart from writing is single-handed ocean sailing.

His novels include:
Blackbird
The Light Horseman's Daughter
Someday Soon
Children of the Sun
Redcoat
Borderline
Great Spirit Valley
The Bookkeeper's Daughter

Review by: Richard Adin on Sep. 19, 2011 :
Another well-written historical novel. My only complaint with all of Crookes' books that I have read to date is that he really needs a proofreader for the ebooks. It becomes tiresome, for example, to read "your" when what is meant is "you're" or "you are". The homonym errors are annoying but not such as to detract from Crookes' natural story-telling abilities.

Review by: Tilly Lilley on March 24, 2011 :
A cracking good story that jogged along at a good pace but doesn't skimp on detail of the central core of the book....WW11 in Australia. Nice to find a book about WW11 from that perspective and of course lives destroyed and loves lost and found within that terrible backdrop.
Highly recommended.
