Author Bio

David was born on Saint Valentine’s Day 1968. Grew up (or at least older) in Taree. Educated, without much effort on his part, culminating with a Bachelor of Computer Science. Worked as an IT drone for too many years. Met various people, married one, had two beautiful children, and became divorced (in the appropriate order).

Following his last relationship, too much stress from his job, and a general air of “yuck,” he found himself inside a “facility.” Taking to writing all about himself, he created a darkly humorous insight into life as a patient of a mental health hospital.

Same historical institutionalised setting…

Same hysterical exaggeration of the truth…

Same heretical self-opinionated universe…

In this sequel to Hospityable, Donald Halfbrain remains his usual atypically quiet, unassuming, and intelligent self.

He is the one shining star in his own universe.

He is also crazy.

Donald is still reeling from the last week of his life. Having been unceremoniously left in a psychiatric hospital microcosm, he is still the same smart, yet reluctant, anti-hero, trying to come to some sort of understanding of his odd situation.

If it wasn’t so funny it would simply be overwhelmingly sad.

Donald Halfbrain is about to continue his story defining, life changing, legend creating path…

“Wonderful characters and ironic humour make this a fantastic read for all lovers of unexpected delights…” Aaron, Readalot Reviewer
