Meet the Author

Dave Jeffery is 46 and lives with his family in rural Worcestershire. He was born in The Black Country and spent most of his youth dreaming of writing and drawing comic strips for DC Thompson, creators of The Beano and The Dandy.


Dave completed his first novel, Badlands, at the age of ten and admits that it was 'pretty awful'. He still has it hidden somewhere in his loft. At school he used to write and illustrate comics for his school friends, selling them for a few pennies. At 15 years of age, he was invited to Dundee to see DC Thompson’s offices after sending his portfolio to them. Nothing may have come of the visit but the dream of getting work published continued.


He is perhaps best known for his Beatrice Beecham series originally with Chipmunka Publications, London. This adventurous, super-sleuth teenager is currently on her second adventure with a third, Beatrice Beecham’s Cryptic Crypt, due out in 2011. The eBook Housefull of Horrors is released through Smashwords on October 31st and contains all seven Beatrice Beecham chapbooks.


Writing as David Jeffery, this author also publishes adult and young adult horror and supernatural fiction. His zombie novel Necroloplis Rising will be released on September 11th through Smashwords. The prelude chapbook Splatoon is available now by following the book cover link on the home page. His Beatrice Beecham Presents: Campside Chillers collection will also be available early next year. In the interim Dave's short stories can be found in the Creature Feature anthology and his story Masquerade has been accepted for inclusion in the forthcoming WATCH anthology from Imprint Phoenix Publications.


When he is not writing novels Dave works as a mental health practitioner. He has published an academic book with John Wiley & Sons and articles in his field of mental health whilst presenting on the international stage. He is in the process of editing another book for Speechamrk Publishing Ltd, for release in 2011.


He is also author of Finding Jericho, a novel for young adults released through Chipmunka Publications, London exploring the relationship between a 15 year old boy and an uncle who has been diagnosed with manic depression. This book has been endorsed by the mental health charity MIND.


Dave enjoys music, playing guitar and was once in a band called The Lion Farm who took their name from the council estate where he was dragged up.

    To snowball

    Step 1. Choose a clan-you will find various clans at erin hunter warriors books. There us also this panther pack
    step 2. Make a character-varies on the rp. You could be a cat, a dog, a human etc.
    Step 3. Design your character-what does he/she look like?
    Step 4. Create a name-what dp we call you?
    Step 5. What is your personality? What are you like?
    Step 6. Ask to join.
    Example: headline:your name here
    I am ------------. I am loyal, caring, (your personality). May i join?

    The heads den

    Behind the waterfall....are caves. The first one is the heads den. It is surprisingly light in here. There is plenty of space and enough moss and grass with bark to last a long time. A small stream pours into a big puddle.

    Short horror story

    The ending wasn't what I expected. It's definately different but enjoyable for a short scary story.
