David Morvryn (Sylvanus, Keith) Donachie is a writer, artist, game designer, and IT professional living in Edinburgh, Scotland. He lurks in a draughty garret (it is really a normal upstairs flat, but it is genuinely draughty), with his wife, and a large variety of scaly, furry, and chitinous pets.
David has written stories of every kind since he was old enough to hold a pencil. When he was little he used to make his own short story books out of loose paper and sellotape — it was always his dream to be a published author. Although he has written for a number of games (Solipsist, Starblazer, Mindjammer), The Night Alphabet is his first published work of fiction.
