We are so pleased to announce a new writer to KGHH Publishing. His third novel entitled "Awakening". was published Feb 2018.
We see real potential in David Munro and we are sure you will grow to love his work:
David was born in Edinburgh and lived there until the age of 27. He was employed by a major brewery within the capital and relocated to Aberdeen, then Glasgow. David attended university and college to attain chartered status in an arts discipline. As an arts professional and with experience of different cultures, this lends itself to creative literature.
David’s love of history allows him the opportunity to delve into past cultures and pinnacle events. His book, Awakening, has a First World War theme, telling the story of romance and heartache. However, as well as being set in 1914, it follows a time traveller’s journey to 2014, where he also experiences contrasting emotions.
As a writer, David’s ambition is to give his readers enjoyment through interesting stories with compelling characters. Awakening has one male and two female characters that readers will embrace. To achieve recognition for his novel in the form of a best-seller is a goal.
