David Cox is a sixty-something father of two and husband to Sally for forty-four years. He likes tea, cookies, puppies (although he'll deny it), cheap B flicks, and scotch. Dave has done everything from running a medical clinic, racing motorcycles professionally to a stint as a banker. Prior to moving up the coast he was a mediator, arbitrator and business consultant for twenty years. None of this gave him any skills for living off the grid.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Leaving the city behind. Embracing the forest. Living independently and learning the skills with which to do it.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Off the grid is an unusual genre and not easily accepted by publishers. I am not a well-known author nor will I be a prolific one and e-publishing gave me this opportunity.
