David Hough was born in Cornwall, England, a distant relative of the historian, Dr. A L Rowse. However, because of his fathers work, he lived in the Georgian City of Bath from the age of two. To some extent his love of books was fostered by a competent English teacher at his secondary school, which was housed in a Georgian edifice called Weymouth House. That building was a piece of history. David never understood why they pulled it down to build a clothing store. Visit David online at http://whiskeycreekpress.com/authors/David_Hough.shtml
On the mortgage-paying work front, David spent forty years working as an air traffic controller in Northern Ireland, Scotland and England. The latter part of his career was spent as an instructor at the United Kingdom College of Air Traffic Control. He retired early in 2003 and dedicated his life to writing.
Some of Davids stories stem from his own life experience. He was the aerodrome controller on duty at Belfast Airport when troops were flown into the province in 1969. Death in Ireland owes a lot to Davids experience of working in Northern Ireland during the period known as the Troubles.
