David Tinkler started off on the old Eagle comic subbing Dan Dare scripts and writing crossheads for Jennings episodes. He eventually went freelance and survived by writing obituaries and an annual history of the world. David has written a dozen books for children all of which left the critics breathless with wonder and awe. And if he wasn’t so lazy he’d have written a whole lot more.
So there’d have been more awe!
He is married and has three grown up children.
