David Purse is a twenty something writer of young adult, middle grade, and picture books.

While waiting on his acceptance letter from Hogwarts (which has still to come), David earned a degree in business and worked in the very boring financial industry before finally putting pen to paper and letting his crazy imagination run wild.

Being a relentless insomniac, you can usually find him typing away into the early hours of the morning, welcoming the sunrise with his tenth cup of coffee.

In his spare time, David enjoys reading until the lines blur, laughing until it hurts, and sleeping in late. He lives in a small town in West Scotland and loves the constantly cold weather.

David also writes adult thrillers under the pen name Jack McSporran.
