David M. Kelly is a writer of speculative fiction, exploring the inner and outermost reaches of people’s lives, feelings and beliefs. He weaves plots that fascinate, characters that are memorable and stories that probe and question.
David’s interest in science and technology began at an early age. At the age of six his parents allowed him to stay up late into the night to watch the television broadcast of Neil Armstrong stepping on to the surface of the moon. From that day he was hooked on everything related to science and space.
David writes about science, technology and politics on his blog. His short story “Inser” was published in issue five of Canadian science fiction magazine Neo-opsis. He is currently working on his novel, codenamed MOE.
James Palmer, of Tangent magazine, said this about Inser. “[Kelly] has given INSER an incredible range of emotion… this is a very good story that explores emotion and psychosis in a robot.”
David has worked for many years in project management and software development. Previous interests have included IPSC combat (target) pistol shooting, crew chief on a drag racing team, and several years as Bass Player/Vocalist in a heavy rock band. He also managed to fit in some real work in manual jobs from digging ditches and work on production lines to loading trucks in a haulage company.
Originally from Huddersfield, in England, he emigrated to Canada in 2005 and lives in Sudbury, Northern Ontario with his patient and supportive wife, Hilary. When not writing, David can be found driving his Corvette ZR-1 or exploring the hiking trails around Lake Superior.
