David Ellis

Biography

I am an award winning author of poetry, fiction and music lyrics. I have been writing poetry and music lyrics for years.

My debut poetry book "Life, Sex & Death - A Poetry Collection Vol 1" is an International Award winning volume, having won an award in the Readers' Favorite 2016 Book Award Contest for Inspirational Poetry Books.

I've collaborated with poets internationally and edited poetry for a variety of people who constantly praise me for helping them to improve the flow and rhythm of their pieces.

My weapon of choice is humour and I use it as often as possible, as it gets me out of trouble.

Think of me like the thriller genre in that I am fast paced, relentless and impossible to put down!

I reside in Tunbridge Wells, Kent in the UK.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My most recent book is called 'See A Dream Within: Found "Poe"try Based On The Collected Poetry Works Of Edgar Allan Poe'. It is a collection of different found poems that I have created looking deep within the poetic masterpieces written by the extraordinary Edgar Allan Poe. His poems were quite short, which has kept my own collection very tight and focused. I usually write inspirational and romantic poems and this whole book is my own love letter to Poe himself.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I think for me the best joy that I get out of writing is knowing that somebody else may read it and be inspired by it, be it for their own way of life or maybe they will be inspired to write something themselves that will, in turn, impact the lives of others. Writing makes me feel like I am contributing towards the world in a special way and that I am connecting with people in many ways that benefit all of our lives together. I thrive on the sense of purpose and connection that it creates between all of us.
