He also likes making people laugh and writing poems that everyone can join in with, as well as some more serious ones. David has published many poetry collections for children, as well as hundreds of poems in anthologies. He lives with his wife Paula in Doncaster. They have two grown up daughters, four cats and two dogs. And a monster that lives in the garden.
