Featured Interview With David J Cooper
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
David started writing as a hobby in the 1980s. He interviewed Lynne McGranger, the Australian actress from Home and Away, when she was appearing in pantomime in Torquay, Devon. Surprisingly, his interview with her was published in People’s Friend, a UK magazine. Since then, he decided he would spend more time on writing.
He wrote his first poem, God’s Garden, which is featured in the Best Poems and Poets 2012.
Though he’ll forever be an Englishman at heart, he now lives in Mexico with his 3 dogs, Chula, Sooty, and Benji.
If he’s not working on his latest story, you can find him walking his dogs or watching Discovery channel.
David says that he and Bear Grylls have something in common: adventure.
David’s adventure is writing books!
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I’ve always been interested in books. I started writing in the 1980’s.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I like reading paranormal stories, anything to do with things that are difficult to explain, so these authors inspire my writing.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Hasta Mañana is a story based on real life events and is about a person who was murdered because he was involved in an argument with the narco who controlled his town.
After the funeral, his partner and family seek the help of a lawyer, from the city, to start an investigation into his death.
Not surprisingly, they come up against many obstacles – drug dealers -corruption within the legal system – falsified death reports, and friends of the victim who are afraid to tell the truth!
The story reflects the REAL Mexico and not the Mexico you see on travel programmes.
