Even at Mandurah Library’s monthly ‘Writers in the Library’ program, which David hosted just before leaving, the audience seemed to sense the quiet roar of wayfaring impulses and self-sabotage had taken hold once again. And in the Q&A session following David’s entertaining talk one astute audience member asked,
‘Will you ever stop travelling?’
‘Good question,’ David replied, and to the amusement of the audience admitted it was almost too difficult to answer, since he’d asked it of himself many times without success but added,
‘However, I am about to leave again on another trip back to the Americas.’
So in servitude to words and cadence, narrative, ambiguity and truth that doesn’t get in the way of a good yarn, it made sense to David (or at least a good reason as any) to embark on a new adventure to research a third travel book by starting where he last left.
So after arriving in LA a week ago David has found himself in South Carolina with predictably vague plans and a woman on his mind.
That being said he hopes to travel across the Americas engaging in a new style of travelling to past journeys – revisiting places missed last time David was in the Americas, and seeking out back counties, and nature and lesser known destinations to see who’s knocking about out there.
David is always up for a chat and a drink and meeting new folk. And although he can’t promise you won’t appear in his next book, he likes to think he has a gift for pseudonyms in case you don’t like to share in obscure and minimal fame. So check out David’s blogs for updates, or follow him on any number of social sites to track his movements and get in touch if he pops up in a neighbourhood near you. Or, if in doubt of his whereabouts don’t be shy and just email him.
