David was born in New Zealand, but during a working holiday in Australia in 1984, he decided Australia was the place for him, and has lived here ever since. In early 2017, he and his wife moved to Tasmania, and settled in the beautiful Huon Valley with their two labradoodles. David is a podiatrist by trade, and enjoys bushwalking, photography, gardening, and bee keeping. His inspiration to write comes from his love for trees and wildlife, and his memories of childhood exploration. He includes a richness of history and culture in his writing that has come from extensive travels, both within Australia and overseas.
"The great thing for these stories is the sense of wonder and innocence that brings the gentle learning to the surface and gives a sense of fun to what the world around us is really like, even if through the eyes of mice...well done Mr Webby, great work!" Roger, indiebook reviewer.
