About David W Kirby

I am nearly 55 years old and I have written my whole life; seriously, I have a file of rejection letters a foot thick to prove it. My English was poor after leaving school so I understand why. I've spent my time since loosing my job re-writing everything and putting my life's work online. You can find 40 years worth of novels, plays, poetry and essays published at Scribd:

During the recent period of uploading I have managed to edit and deal with the poor grammar that held me back earlier. I am proud of my work and so far the 27.000 readers I've had to date agree with me.

I write about the underbelly of life and life's loosers. Having experienced difficulties in the past I have an intuitive understanding of depravation; this combined with my psychological training helps get into my character's minds and explain what drives them. I also have an intrest in the unusual and history. Hence one day I may write about a drug addicted cab driver who has a transexual as a partner and the next about ghosts.

The first book I wrote 'Before Now and After' was started when I was a wayward 15 year old at one of those Stonehenge Free festivals back in the early 70s. I still own the two foolscrap tombs filled with my longhand scrawl. As the sound of Hawkwind filled the hash stained air and rain fell across the field of tents and flags the words just spilled onto the page.

It ended up being written backward with the last section being written first, and the first section written last and the narrative is like a teenagers bedroom wall, here's a splash of occultism, there a flash of music and a whole load of other interest thrown into the mix.

The publishing industry never got to appreciate the talent and only saw the crazy grammer and bad puctuation; thank the lord for internet publishing.
