Dave Preston is a writer and musician, born in North Yorkshire where he lived on a farm and was raised by a mother who worries too
much. After studying agriculture, engineering, and computer science he leapt
across the ocean to live and work in Canada.
Dave spent many years as a food columnist, entertainment reviewer, and travel
writer. He is the author of five books (and contributor to several others) and
four plays, as well as hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles and columns.
He's an award-winning brewer and winemaker, and also admits to writing poetry.
Weekends often find him playing guitar and singing in a rock and roll band
(though his mother worries that he's getting too old for all this, and his
knees tend to agree).
He lives on Vancouver Island, BC, with far too much garden, and almost
too many dogs.
