Dragons Unremembered Half Awakened Dreams Covenant With the Dragons Beyond the Shallow Bank Beyond the Shallow Bank Illustrated Edition Something on my Mind

David A. Wimsett
Author, Journalist and Business Writer

Whether in a small fishing village at the turn of the twentieth century, a future world or a land that exits only in imagination with magic and dragons, my books have action, adventures, political intrigue, personal challenges, contemplative moments, tender scenes and humor set in immersive worlds with histories, legends and cultures.

There are characters of different genders, orientations, identities, colors and ethnicities who are placed in situations that allow them the opportunity to examine their lives. The choices they make determine if they grow or diminish.

I am a member of the Writers' Union of Canada, representing Canadian authors such as Margaret Atwood and Michael Ondaatje, as well as the Canadian Freelance Guild and the Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia where I sit on the Writer's Council.
