David Whale lives in Stoney Creek, Ontario Canada, with his spouse Crazy, his step-daughter Lil Crazy, and their three dogs Tucker, Weasley & Mundungus.  He has been telling stories in various forms since he was a kid, from writing and drawing his own comic books to creating photo-stories using his old Kenner Star Wars action figures to script doctoring on a televised sports show to finally completing Radko’s War – his first published novel.

When not writing, Whale enjoys reading, drawing, creating custom action figures, playing the X-Wing Miniatures Game and trying like hell to finish the Stormtrooper costume he’s been working on intermittently for a year.
