David Floody is a writer and novelist living and working in the village of Tofino, on the Wild West Coast of Vancouver Island, Canada, immersed in the awe-inspiring natural beauty of Clayoquot Sound, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, home of old-growth forest, wild salmon and lands sacred to the Nuu-chah-nulth People for 5,000 years.
David is a member of the Clayoquot Writers' Group and the Performance Anxiety Collective, a cabaret group taking their words from the page to the stage. As the impish impresario of Implosion Press, he is dedicated to producing good writing with bad attitude. His YA novel, The Colour of Pride, set in Windsor and Detroit in 1968, will soon be available in ebook and print formats. Storyline: A year after the Detroit race riot, a Canadian teen confronts a young black girl, a racist bully and his own values at the 1968 World Series.
David is currently revising a near-future, science fiction novel sequel to one of his favourite sf movies, the 1950s' classic, The Day the Earth Stood Still, fan fiction without the heavy breathing (No sex please, we're aliens). "Klaatu barada nikto." (photo D. Baswick)
