He's the author of YA novel Hybrids, in which a virus causes teenagers to merge with technology in a terror-filled near-future world. Hybrids is "a stunningly clever novel" – The Times – and was winner of the HarperCollins-Saga Magazine 2006 Childrens Novelist competition.
His latest novel is the futuristic romantic tragedy/fantasy, Stormteller.
This interview by Hannah Murray of Talk Radio Europe with David gives a good summary! He talks about working for Marvel Comics, Hybrids, Stormteller, and caring for the environment:
He also co-wrote The Fastest Forward for Comic Relief, a feature film starring Jerry Hall, and co-founded the London Screenwriters' Workshop in the '80s.
One completed further novel is awaiting a contract: LifeTheft. He is developing a film version of Hybrids and is working on an SF novel, The Moebius Trip, which is probably the most mind-boggling time travel story you will ever read.
