David Eveleigh


I have received professional training in the fine arts and have also worked as both a writer and artist for Moondial Comics as well as a contributor for "Transformers: Mosaic" and a creative consultant for Project AGU. I am currently working on my creator owned superhero series "All Hallows Eve" and donate 50% of the royalties from it to various local charities. I have also published a vampire novel called "Leech" on KDP and am looking to expand "All Hallows Eve" to other mediums.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
"All Hallows Eve: I, Villain" is an experimental new story that puts the reader in the role of the supervillain. It is written in a style reminiscent of both the early American horror comics and the Italian fumetti neri. The goal of the story is to inspire moral introspection on behalf of the audience. Also, I have "All Hallows Eve: The Menace Of Mutantula" aimed for a boxing day release. This one is a tribute to the drive-in monster movies of the 50s and 60s (if I'm going to do a genre series set during the atomic age, I've got to have a giant bug show up somewhere). Sure, we make fun of those movies all the time. But let's face it, the satires are never half as enjoyable as the stories that play the concept straight (and I can guarantee that, unlike a certain other giant creature feature, there will be no pretentious cutaways here, folks).
When did you first start writing?
I first started in my last year of high school. That would have been in mid-2003 if my memory is correct. I began by writing fan fiction over on fictionalley.org. I had never set foot inside a creative writing class, so I was incredibly nervous as to how my work would be received. However, after it turned out that people not only didn't hate it but actually liked it, I decided to make the jump into original fiction. After that, I worked as a writer and artist for a small, local company called Moondial comics (which, sadly, is no longer with us). When they folded, I began developing my ideas as prose stories and now, here I am.
