About

In 2018 I was training to enter a Ironman but pushed too hard and ended up in hospital for several months, I had to forgo my career as a Youth Worker and spend significant time recovering from a brain injury. Something happened. I had not climbed in 20 years but, wierdly enough, as the neurons in my brain mended my climbing memories were re-wired and I found myself writing about climbing. This has led me to interview the best climbers in the World, become the Assistant Editor of Common Climber Magazine, and has had me write a book. This is what MY CAUSE fundraising is about.

I have completed something I believe is remarkable, a book of CLIMBING FICTION. The Story is called the RED CURTAIN. You will will follow the journey of a Team of Climbers on an expedition of the ages as they climb a new route on Mars for reasons that are just as compelling as the climb. Meticulous research and frothy fun has melded to give todays adventurers a glimps into their tomorrows.

I am seeking assistance with publishing costs. It turns out that Climbing Publishers are not ready for Climbing Fiction. It's sad in a way as climbing is about looking skywards not backwards. My book covers this space of climbing future - literally. Like other trail blazers I will go where no climber has gone before and I will take you there too. The story is 56,000 words and I plan to have it ready by by llate January, 2021.

Help Climbing Literature move forward. Contact me if you require further information on my Mars Mission, The Red Curtain. Any donation will help me get it to you and see my first book published independly. This is one step for Dave but will be a giant leap for Climbing Literature.
