Dave Brummet has lived his life in the interior of beautiful British Columbia, Canada and spends free time exploring the wilderness for inspiration. An avid photographer and history buff he likes to explore the old mines and ghost towns that riddle the backcountry of BC. Whether it is on snowshoes, by mountain bike or on foot with the two dogs they have rescued, he and his wife, Lillian, tend to tread a light path on the earth and leave only footprints and take only pictures when on their many excursions. Writing professionally since 1999 Dave co-authors with Lillian for most of their published work to date. He is in charge of the editing, proofreading, graphic work and cover design as well as the up-keep of their website and creating musical audio ads for Lillians’s radio show.
Also a professional drummer/percussionist and educator, Dave has collaborated on various songs that later led to him writing lyrics of his own, some of which are included in the Brummet’s most recent book of poetry, “Rhythm and Rhyme”. Initially it was Dave who first sparked the idea for the Brummet’s to walk this path they tread today – he decided to take a writer’s course to learn what he might be able to do with his short stories that he has compiled over the years. Most of those stories have remained unpublished to this day due to other projects taking precedence, but Dave plans to release some in the near future.
