B. S. Davies


B S Davies was born at a very young age on Halloween in 1958, the first offspring of Welsh parents. By the time his two sisters were born, the family had moved back to Wales, where his heart is (his lungs are in Norwich, his head is normally somewhere that does not appear on most maps).

When he was old enough he joined the Royal Air Force, working in that well known contradiction in terms – Military Intelligence. He left in 1982 and worked at the University of East Anglia in Norwich as a cartographer.

Life is a varied path from start to finish, and his has been no different, having worked as a frozen food packager, milkman, advertising executive, graphic designer, which once gave him the obscure opportunity of painting a check on the side of a cow!

He is currently working as a freelance Graphic Designer and copywriter.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to create situations, people and thrown in the occasional curve ball. Steven King once said the greatest inspiration for a writer is asking the question "What if?" and that has become my credo.
What is your writing process?
I have a plot in my head at first. Then I write the first and last chapter. Then just fill it with the things that matter to drive the story. If I don't know what's going to happen next, then hopefully, neither will the reader.
