Born in Sunderland many years ago I went to college in Bradford and trained to be a teacher, a profession I followed for 34 years. It was while teaching that the writing bug bit but was largely unfulfilled. I say ‘largely unfulfilled’ because I did produce some poetry and even began planning a novel. The novel didn’t happen and sadly the poetry was eventually lost.
I have always had the ambition to write and eventually began proper in 2009 and have completed thirteen novels since. I blog daily on http://david-latkinson.blogspot.com and there are also short stories, poetry as well as commentary on the writing process.
To all those people who love reading and believe that they may like to write one day, I would say – Go for it! Don’t expect instant success, it isn’t impossible but rather unlikely, but be true to yourself and deliver the art that is within you.
