About the Author

David K MacDonald was born and educated in Glasgow before moving to the Outer Hebrides. He continued his studies by majoring in psychology, philosophy and economics at Robert Gordon's University, Aberdeen.


He has worked in the Far East for a number of years and has had a varied career taking him to many locations around the world. He is a writer by day and a reader by night.


Poetry is his first love 'you can write poetry and you can read it, but it really only means something if you can 'taste' it';  his 'Why the Sea?' was a published award-winning poem.

His first book, 'A Book of You', an examination of the uniqueness of emotional DNA, drew on his academic and life experiences combining both psychology and philosophy. His most recent book, 'Lethal Injection', is a crime thriller which also asks serious questions about how the death penalty is perceived.
