About the Author:
David Medhurst is a Writer, Illustrator, Animator and Instructor who has been involved in many creative endeavors throughout his professional career. One of five children, David comes from a very creative background with both of his parents being musicians, as well as one elder brother being an Examiner with the Royal Conservatory of Music, and another a published poet and brilliant photographer.
His first book, "Andy's Dandy Day", actually started many years ago with David's Maternal Grandfather, Mr. Robert Isaac Cook, who incidentally, was the inspiration for one of the book's characters, Mr. Moose. His "Grandpa" was his primary caregiver throughout his early years, and it was through his Grandfather, as well as his parents, and the world around him, that he was introduced and entertained with so many wonderful tales.
That is where it all started, and he has been writing stories ever since. Also citing A.A. Milne and J.M. Barry as influences, it is not surprising that David manages to tap into his inner child to write and illustrate beautiful stories that appeal to everyone of any age.
Residing in Ontario Canada, David and his wife of many years Rosa are parents to one son who expresses his own creative talents through music. It is only recently that David has started to share his stories through both his words and illustrations, and he has many stories waiting to be told!
