David M. Brown


I was born in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, and first conceived the idea of the Elencheran Chronicles at college in 1999. I spent ten years compiling the history of Elenchera, resulting in 47,000+ years of events, 500+ maps, 2000+ pages, several short stories and many much-needed acquaintances with Jack Daniels.

I also have a joint blog with my wife, Donna, called Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dave, which features reviews, stories and dramatic tales of the horrors of owning cats.

I now live in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, with my wife, Donna, and our six cats.
