David McCaffrey was born in Middlesbrough, raised in West Sussex and now lives in Redcar. He worked in the NHS for many years, his last position being Lead Nurse in Infection Prevention and Control at James Cook University
He started writing following the birth of his first son and in 2010 was accepted onto the writing coach programme run by Steve Alten, international bestselling author of Meg and The Mayan Prophecy. The Tally Man was the result and the rest, as they say, is history (cliche, cliche).
Though psychological thrillers are his raison d’etre, David is also an activist for bullying and harassment in the NHS. His
book, ‘Do No Harm: Bullying and Harassment in the NHS’ went to Number One in the Nursing and White Collar Crime categories of Amazon Kindle charts in November 2018 and was the Number One bestselling book in the U.S Amazon Kindle charts for more than three weeks in the Issues, Trends and Roles category.
David is a proud supporter and donator to the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation which tackles bullying across the board, from schools to the workplace. He had the honour of being invited to speak at the Standup Foundation’s Inaugural Conference in November 2018.
Half of all profits from ‘Do No Harm’ go to the Ben Cohen Foundation.
David lives with his wife Kelly, has a Jakey, a Liam (a.k.a Gruffy) and a Cole (a.k.a Baby Moo Man)
They also have an Obi… who’s the dog.
