David Gaughan

Biography

Born on the same day and month as Mark Twain, this Sagittarius has always been the explorer, not only in world travel pursuits but also alternative fringe subjects.

Having climbed the Great Pyramid of Cheops (and getting arrested doing so), some of his other world experiences included riding camels in the Sahara Desert, white-water rafting at the top of the Ganges river, fire walking on a weekend retreat, hot air ballooning in the Cappadocia Region in Turkey and visiting ashrams in Northern India. Much of David's overseas travel has been fueled by his keen interest in metaphysical subjects. In his earlier years he witnessed, along with three other people, a sighting of a UFO mother ship and four smaller craft, and that was the catalyst for him to research that subject, also in connection with established world viewpoints and how ancient prophecies might hold the clue to our past and future. Having had close friends and relatives affected by ill health, David's writing incorporates a wide variety of subjects, from natural healing techniques and alternative living guidelines through to fictional works for both young and older readers, his writing influenced by the rich tapestry of life experiences.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I remember writing was at the age of five. It was largely copying ideas from a children's storybook and that triggered my first instincts to become a writer one day.
What is your writing process?
The story comes to me in visual form, like I'm watching a movie unfold. I then describe the scene as it plays out in my mind's eye. I initially used to write the first draft in longhand, but now I dictate and then type it later.
