About the Book

I am mentally ill. I have been mentally ill for a long time. I battle depression and anxiety and have done so for years. I have had counselling therapy and I take a little white pill every day that keeps me level. I am not ashamed of any of this. For a long time, I was ashamed, and I hid my illness from others and even from myself. I hid it well until I could no longer hide it and my body started to give up the fight. The effects of my illness are played out in my thoughts which fill my brain with pain, fear and low self-worth. I believe that one of the only ways to minimise the impact of the negative thoughts that plague me is to bring them into the light of day and expose them to reality. This isn't a book in which you will find expert advice or a 5 step programme to mental well-being. It is a book in which I hope you find hope in the knowledge that you are not alone. I hope you read my story and realise that your pain is valid, that you are worth helping and that your life is worth more than being miserable. I hope in my honesty you find encouragement to be honest with yourself about the help you need to escape your own thoughts. We are all more precious and fragile than we think we are.

About the Author

Dave lives in the stunning city of York with his wife and sons. Dave has always had a passion for writing. He loves being with people and enjoys a good coffee and chat with anyone who wants one. For Dave, here is nothing quite like finding common ground with someone and chatting away the hours. If you are ever in Bath grab him for a coffee.

Dave writes short, easy to read books in the hopes that those who are not normally readers will pick one up and engage with some of the thoughts in the text.

12 Days At Christmas is a short, 12 Day devotional to be read alongside the Christmas narratives in the Gospels. You can also find a sample of Dave's first book, Just Being Honest - a collection of stand alone reflections on what it has meant for Dave as he has tried to follow the teachings of Jesus.

Most recently Dave has published, The Voices That Haunt Us, the story and lessons he has learned from a long term battle with his own mental health.
