About David Alric

David has had a highly distinguished career as a medical professor, having established himself as an international leader in the field of radiology. David's writing experience and scientific knowledge have now been brought to bear on writing for a very different readership. In his novels, The Promised One and The Valley of the Ancients, he combines his story-telling skills honed by years of reading to his children and grandchildren with his deep and wide-ranging understanding of natural history, science and general knowledge to create a fascinating mixture of adventure, fantasy and fact. David is married with three children and five grandchildren. They see him most days and are his severest critics.
