David Phelps

David Phelps was born in Hereford. At a young age he went out into the world to seek his fortune but, instead of being kind to mysterious personages in woods, he made the mistake of joining the Civil Service and so failed in that enterprise. Returning to Herefordshire he became convinced that writing stories about his native county would bring him fame and fortune. We can only hope that his next preoccupation, playing cricket for England, will bring him greater success. You can find more details about his money making schemes at Website: www.davidphelpswrites.co.uk
