This Months Programme
David Fennell was born and raised in Belfast before leaving for London at the age of eighteen with £50 in one pocket and a dog-eared copy of Stephen King’s ‘The Stand’ in the other. He jobbed as a chef, waiter and bartender for several years before starting a career in writing for the software industry. He has now been working in Cyber Security for fifteen years and is fierce advocate for information privacy.
He has written two young adult books and has just published the second in his series of crime thrillers. (See below)
