Self Publishing Journeys

Episode 21: David J Robertson

David Robertson and MistyIt takes many writers years and years to finally set pen to paper.

Author David Robertson has possibly had a more rocky ride than most.

David is a former engineer who got his first book published after three shattering life events.

This is in spite of being told 10 years ago that he should get an agent for a sci-fi fantasy novel that he started in 2006.

David is a dog-lover too, and he uses his interest as the inspiration for his writing.
