My name is David Beecroft and I am 38 years old. Welcome to my blog.
I started this blog when suffering from depression and attending therapy, so a large part of my writing was about my experience and thoughts of that. Since then I am in a much better place and I write about life after depression and how I stay (or try to) ahead of it happening again. All of this has left me with an awful lot of varied thoughts in my head that find themselves spilling out into this blog.
In my increasingly distant past, I co-founded and ran a small scale touring theatre company called Screwed & Clued. I went on to tour the Canadian Fringe Theatre Festival circuit over the following five years. I have written six original plays, the last ‘The Poe Show’ won a Best in Fest award at the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival. I worked in a social care setting for ten years and now work in a special needs school. I have written my first novel, ‘The Time Keepers’ Union’, which is currently looking for a lovely home with a kind and generous agent. I host a radio show on Surrey Hills Community Radio called Dave of the Week where I cover happy and unusual news from around the world. I live with my fiancee and a pet Degu.
