Dave Corrick


I was born in Christchurch New Zealand and have, for a number of years lived in Auckland.

My qualifications are in engineering; however from the years 2000 to 2009 I dedicated my time to creative computer programming. I essence I developed software to run on the Windows platform and then marketed it.

It required some application of imagination to develop software and in 2009 I used this same imagination to write my first book. This was something I have always wanted to do and quite frankly, once I started I enjoyed it immensely.

Close by to where we live (that's my wife Julie, and me) there is a delightful bush lined stream where we walk most days. It's a beautiful natural oasis in suburban Auckland. This stream was where with a little imagination the two "Louie the Bee" books were "born".

The "Louie the Bee" books are available from Amazon, and Barnes and Noble in hard copy form and a few sell. However I must say the greatest pleasure I gain from writing is seeing the pleasure others get from reading the stories I have created. I feel I have achieved this when I see how the "Louie the Bee" books, that are here in our Auckland libraries; are always in demand. Seeing this has been the absolute true pleasure of writing for me.

Subsequent to the "Louie The Bee Books", I was motivated to write the two "Love Sweet Love" books, by the despair I feel at what man is doing to the planet and how inevitably we will bring about our own demise. In reading "Love Sweet Love" you will know what I mean!

Currently "Love Sweet Love" is only available in eBook format from Smashwords and Amazon Kindle.
