David C. Dawson

David C Dawson writes contemporary thrillers with gay heroes in love at their core. His debut novel The Necessary Deaths, published by DSP Publications, has been described as “a real page turner”. Rainbow Reviews said it was “an exciting read with complex characters".

He wrote a short story about a chance encounter with George Clooney for the anthology Love Wins, published here by Dreamspinner Press.

DSP Publications will publish his second book later this year. Meanwhile, he's working on a romantic suspense about an American guy in London. 


David is retired from the BBC, where he worked as a journalist. He lives near Oxford in the UK, with his ageing Triumph motorbike and two cats.
