Dave Cornford has long balanced a career in financial services with creative pursuits in writing, stage directing, videography and gastronomy.
As an experienced playwright, his contemporary passion play, The Turramurra Passion, has been performed over 80 times in Sydney, as well as elsewhere in Australia, Europe and the US.
His first book, "Cracks in the Ceiling" (2011), is a collection of short stories set in the wake of the Global Financial Crisis, while his second, "Nanna's Travel Tips" (2012), is a humourous look at travel through the eyes of "Nanna".
"Not a Gold Rush - The Taleist Self-Publishing Survey". A look at self-publishing based on the input of over 1,000 self-publishing authors. Co-authored with Steven Lewis.
"Spillage" and "Impact" are the first two episodes in the "Advanced Smash Repairs" series, which is set in a smash repair business that knows too much. Quirky and off-beat, "Spillage" and "Impact" will be followed by the third in the series, "Scratch."
"15 Civic Square", the first in a series of short stories set in a ficticious bank. It contains three stories first released in Cracks in the Ceiling. "Cake Knives Don't Kill" will be the second release in the series.
"The Queensbury Rules". A novella about the dark side of revenge, and the illusiveness of redemption.
Dave lives in Sydney with his wife and three children.
