Podiatry, Health and Fiction

Find all my current books on Amazon KDP

Books and all that written stuff are covered under my bookstore. You can find my latest books here or check out the expert reviews. As a keen author, David likes to tackle different themes using his website, encouraging others to write, publishing books for organisations, writing about various health issues and, of course, delving into fiction. While foot health and practice have been his main identity, he is keen to look at different aspects of health. His fictional books are a hobby that must be squeezed between other projects.

Every now and then, a great health book comes on the market, and I like to write it up when I can find a spare moment. Read about David, the author heremy latest books are featured below.
