David Atkinson's headshot

I live in Edinburgh with my wife, two daughters and a dog called Bea. I have been both traditionally and independently published. My books have won the Page Turner Genre award and have been shortlisted by the RNA for Romantic Comedy of the Year.

I am also proficient in editing, critiquing and proofreading. My last novel also involved writing, arranging, producing and releasing an album of songs.

My main genre is comedy/drama & romance but I have also written crime fiction and dystopian.
