David Eccles is an author who was born in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, and he still lives there to this day.
Raised on a diet of pulp comic books, graphic novels, classic literature of all genres and contemporary fiction and horror, he always wanted to be a writer, but real life always seemed to get in the way, until recently.
After giving up his job in the security industry to care for his elderly father, he finally found time to realize his dream of becoming a writer and so began writing his first novel, which has yet to see the light, because floods of ideas for short fiction pieces kept coming to the fore of his mind and so for the immediate future, the novel has been put to one side.


After writing chapter two of a twenty-part episodic flash fiction project entitled Easter Bunny Apocalypse for author Ksenia Anske on her blog, he wrote The Teeth Police, which was featured by author and publisher James Roy Daley on his BOOKSoftheDEADPRESS website. He had this to say about David:

“I’ve been keeping my eye on David Eccles for a while now; he’s clearly one of the good guys. His flash fiction piece The Teeth Police is awesome, reminds me of early Stephen King. If you’ve read Night Shift you might know what I’m talking about.”


Author M.C. O’Neill says that David’s writing style reminds him of the writing of Necroscope author Brian Lumley.


The praise from authors goes on, and author and publisher James Ward Kirk recently accepted stories from Darke Times and Other Stories for inclusion in six of his anthologies.

David’s first book, a collection of fourteen flash fiction and short stories, Darke Times and Other Stories, was published on July 14th 2013 and is available on Amazon, Smashwords and elsewhere.

      Thank you, Allen! I’ll take a look later. I’m snowed under with my website at the moment, tweaking and tuning it since i moved it away from WordPress.com. They shut mine down, so i bought hosting and my own domain. I was up and running again the same day! Lost my followers though because of the domain change! I’ll rebuild my following soon enough, and lots more besides!
      Thank you for the Award and the wonderful comments!
