Excerpt

A young face and an old heart are sorry companions, but an old face and a young heart are sorrier still.

* * * * *

What people will 'say' is the bugbear of small minds.

* * * * *

Love would cease to exist were it not for the gift of idealizing.

* * * * *

A fly is but a small thing, yet it can disturb the greatest philosopher.

* * * * *

Is a new soul created at every birth, or are we merely corpses warmed over?

* * * * *

Kind words and a sympathetic handclasp have done more to reclaim lost souls than all the tracts ever published.

* * * * *

A minute is a short duration of time, yet in that interval one may experience the whole gamut of human emotions.

David is not only the author of numerous novels and short stories, but also runs his own print, digital and audio publishing company. This makes him a busy man indeed, but we did manage to catch up with him to find out more about his novel, Nevermore, his fascination with history and some of his most unique travel experiences.
