David E. Burnell

Author of
The Coven of the Unholy (2011) &
The Elevator (2005)

David Burnell started ‘dabbling’ in creative writing in the early eighties and since then his interest has not waned, to say the least. In the past six years, David has created a growing readership for himself by publishing two successful novels. Now, he is finishing one novel, working on another, and he is preparing his first collection of short fiction.

His latest title, The Coven of the Unholy, was published in 2011. The story centres on an evil, Satanic cult that is rising in the midst of a world that is afflicted with turmoil and strife. Innocent people become entangled with the cult and suffer greatly because of it. The book has been so well received and sales have been so brisk that David is working on it’s sequel Satan’s Shadow.

David’s first novel, The Elevator, published in 2005, is a mystery story set in the 1970’s, the early days of commercial computer systems. Though the novel is set in that time frame, it has its roots in WWII’s Nazi Germany. The book is very well received and feed-back has been tremendous.

After emigrating to Canada from England in 1967, David spent most of his working life managing engineering and drafting offices. He is married to Pamela and they celebrated their fiftieth anniversary in 2009. They have two sons and one daughter.

David is finishing up on a novel that takes place in WWII Britain. The story is primarily a love story between a battle fatigued Canadian pilot and a doctor’s daughter with a talent for singing. The story takes place in 1944 and has a background of mainly historical fact.

His next project is an anthology of short stories which should be published in the fall of 2012.
