About David Bowmore
David Bowmore was born on a winter’s night with the sound of thunder and the flash of lightning welcoming him into a brightly painted Gypsy caravan. Forty-five years later he started writing fiction. After a steep learning curve, his short stories and flash fiction began to appear in various collections.
A classically trained chef, a personable teacher and unqualified landscape gardener, David has lived here, there and everywhere, but currently dwells in Yorkshire with his wonderful wife and a small white poodle.
David tends to write thrillers and mysteries as well as stories with a touch of the supernatural about them. He focuses on character and the oddities of being human, sometimes with humour, but more often with dark unreality.
When he was younger, he had a love of science fiction and fantasy. In adult life his reading tastes veered towards thrilling mysteries, particularly Golden Age crime. You know the sort of thing – country house murders where everyone is a suspect, impossible locked room mysteries with more red herrings than your local fishing hole.
David is an admirer of many authors including Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, Eric Ambler, Patricia Highsmith, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Elmore Leonard, Stephen King, and P.G. Wodehouse.
Since his first published story, 'Sins of The Father' appeared in Vortex, published by Clarendon House in 2018, David has featured in more than seventy-five short story anthologies, journals and magazines.
In 2020, The Magic of Deben Market was enacted by BookStreamz with actors from across the globe comparing his work to 'Tales of The Unexpected' and 'Inside No. 9'

Are you you drawn to the mystical, or the fantastical?
This second collection from David Bowmore will take you through the ages and into the far future. From Queen Boudica to an inhabited Mars, you will meet unlikely western demon hunters, galactic empresses, and East End bank robbers.
Fifteen Stories highlight the author’s agility to turn his pen to different genres, and his ability to alter the mood which his stories convey: lightly comic in the 1930s, high adventure in the far future and sombre recollections of the Wild West.
Put the kettle on, put your feet up and pick a story - you won't be disappointed.

As she crosses the sand to their intended rendezvous under the moonlight, she spots a dark shadow under a boat. It looks suspiciously like a body. She approaches and presses a finger to the flesh, looking for signs of life. There are none. And no ID either, she discovers.
She wonders if it is her target...
Another murder, another mystery... we must be back in The Magic of Deben Market
When journalist Alistair heads to the beautiful village for a much needed break - courtesy of a friend with a flat he can stay in - the name sounds familiar but he can't quite place it. When he arrives, he finds a quaint harbour and sandy beach with boats bobbing on the water.
Turning up at the pub, he spots old Moony in the corner, a good old boy. He's a fisherman it seems. When he invites Alistair out on his boat at an unearthly hour, apart from the lack of sleep, Alistair thinks there can't be any harm in it. Out on the water in the dark with a stranger...
The Magic of Deben Market is enchanting and engaging, you'll be charmed. And possibly caught out, lulled by the gentle sense of safety. But there's a murky mystery here. The thread of Moony's story is interwoven with tales of the characters who live in the village, where somehow nothing is quite what it seems...
Mike and Polly are a team, in a relationship and in business. But Polly wears the trousers. They start a music management business. She's tough, she wheels and deals and she cheats. Mike finds it hard to keep going. After all, he's got a conscience. And then one evening, tragedy strikes.
And keeps on running. For years.
When the dust finally settles, he's a different man. Literally.
But the past is never dead and buried...
Written by brilliant upcoming authors, a book bubbling over with talent and masterful storytelling.
Each story is linked to the idea of having one more for the road, a beer, a death, or an affair? Only the writer can tell you.
So raise your glass, get strapped in, and follow these wordsmiths into a world of darkness, love, and imagination.
Just remember to never READ AND DRIVE!

Twenty talented authors bring you a dynamic collection of science fiction and space epics in one amazing collection.
A cadet onboard her colony’s last hope for survival must overcome her tragic loss and endure the extremities of cargo hauling in Deep Space, or suffer the same fate as her unlucky crewmates.
A translator on the only exploratory spacecraft funded by a reality TV show dodges the constant cameras while her crewmates grind the gossip gears. She spends the one-way trip piecing together the secret of their destination and finds more than the answer to her life-long search for belonging.
Earth is but a dire souvenir for those old enough to remember it. When Captain Ericson's ship crashed on an unknown planet, seemingly sharing the same properties as Earth, he thinks he has made the greatest discovery of all time: a new home to mankind. That is until the planet reveals its darkest secrets.
Cybernetically enhanced trooper Dared Locke (codename Dreadlock) and his team are sent in to bring a known terrorist leader and xeno-biologist Professor to justice, but they find creatures beyond imagination that lead them to a final confrontation.
And many more.
