David Christopher Johnston is a fiction writer from England. He is the author of numerous short stories and the upcoming satirical fantasy novel, The Infinite Woes of Being a Hero.
David writes humorous and satirical fiction — ignoring the advice of numerous teachers who told him (all those years ago) that “joking around won’t get you anywhere in life” — but dabbles in other genres from time to time. His stories focus on themes of mental health, class prejudice and the modern working world.
David is a qualified lawyer and worked for several years in commercial law practices prior to becoming an author. He devotes much of his spare time to raising awareness and reducing stigma about mental health and wellbeing. He also enjoys music, chuckling to his own jokes, and hiking.
