David James grew up in Manchester, England. After university, he briefly worked as an animator and then as a teacher in England, Japan and Singapore. Once happy to flit around the globe in the most cramped planes, trains and automobiles, nowadays he is happiest when at home reading, writing or simply spending time with his beautiful wife and two eternally hungry cats.
His first book of the young adult science fiction series, "Child of the Gryphon", is entitled "Genesis". It follows the character of Gabriel Millar as he uncovers the shocking and terrifying truth that not all men evolved from apes.
The second book of the series, "Deluge", follows on from the climactic events of "Genesis". It is due for release in the summer of 2013.

He awakens to find himself in a world hidden away from the humans and is reunited with a grandfather he never knew he had. Only then does Gabriel discover the truth about his origins and learn that the idea of man evolving from the Great Apes is but a partial truth...
