About David Jones

David Jones is a writer whose most effective work to date remains a letter he penned to NBC when he was 10 years old. In it, he begged the network not to cancel Star Trek following its first season. The rest, as they say, is history.

Putting aside his fears that he had peaked early, David enrolled in sciences at the University of British Columbia, where he also allowed himself one creative writing course each year. After graduating with a BSc in zoology, he went to work at the Department of Fisheries, where he soon learned that saving the oceans was considerably more difficult than saving a network television series—although he did do a crack job of evaluating the department’s salmon ladders, if he does say so himself.

Since then he has worked steadily as a freelance writer, interrupted by stretches of tramping through the wilds of British Columbia putting dirt in little bags for mining exploration companies.

In his leisure time, David sits by the telephone in Vancouver, still awaiting his thank-you call from William Shatner.
