Davidson L. Haworth        

The father of historical fantasy

Davidson L. Haworth was born in California, USA, on October 29, 1969. His family moved from the UK to the New World in 1920 and established a new line of the California Haworths. However, England and its deep Medieval history became one of Davidson's biggest inspirations.

He has been writing since the age of 6, finding an escape in his small universe. Davidson's first trip to the UK taken in his early childhood together with his father Robin set up his whole life: being fascinated by the old York and stories about dragons and knights, Davidson made up his mind about his future occupation.

Nevertheless, his way was not direct at all. From being a firefighter to studying ecology at Saint Xavier University, Davidson tried several things and gained unique experience. In the 1990's he contributed to San Francisco area sports radio, and performed the role of director in local theater performances in the San Francisco Bay Area. He also performed on stage doing comedy improve in San Jose.

Writing was never left aside, and Davidson has written many stories, as well as articles and screenplays for movies, television, and radio, but fantasy was always close to his heart.

After years of working for a big publishing company, Davidson decided to go his own - independent - way and in 2008 started working on a new project, the Prali Trilogy. The first book of the trilogy, The Dragon of Prali, was released February 2010 and in a couple of weeks was already on sale worldwide.

This latest novel is in the tradition of C.S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien. Today fantasy is the most popular genre, and will be for years to come, thanks to the films Lord Of The Rings, Harry Potter, and Twilight. The Dragon Of Prali brings back the classic storytelling of good and evil with a new twist.

Currently Davidson is working on the second book of the trilogy. He lives in San Jose, California with his wife and two children, and is also enjoying travelling around the world gaining new experience and inspiration.
