David Sartof

Biography

I was born in a small caravan in a field in the north of Scotland. After such an inauspicious yet somehow romantic introduction to life, I have gone on to do many things. I have served in the merchant marine, been a professional engineer, a military officer and an entrepreneur. I also have a PhD in management philosophy and can research the backside off most things! I now live, in North Yorkshire, England, with my wife and young son. Throughout my eclectic career, I have always written, believing fervently in the power of the written word, and I have previously published a non-fiction work with Palgrave Macmillan. I now bring together a set of rich experiences, a creative research-based outlook to plot construction, and a dash of essential seasoning, to bring you fiction such as River of Judgement, Gloria and now, Sarah! The latter two short stories being inspired by the writings of Anton Chekhov.
