"David Quantick is one of the best kept secrets in the world of writing. He's smart, funny and unique. You should let yourself in on the secret."
- Neil Gaiman
"David Quantick has a medical condition whereby he literally cannot be unfunny"
- Caitlin Moran

Go West, my second novel for Unbound, the fantastic pledge publishers, is out now. This one's about forgery, fakes, John Peel, dads, the West Country, lies, and - as the title suggests - the saddest anthem of all time: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Go-West-David-Quantick/dp/1912618702/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1541175552&sr=8-1&keywords=quantick+go+west

I am an author, television writer and radio broadcaster. As well as All My Colors, I wrote the surreal thriller The Mule (“the Da Vinci Code with better grammar” – The Independent) and the comic scifi novel Sparks (“excellent” – Neil Gaiman)I also wrote the critically-acclaimed TV drama Snodgrass, currently being developed into a feature film, and Dickens In Rome, a new play for Northern Stage.
I've won several broadcast awards, including an Emmy as part of the writing team on Veep.
I was also lucky enough to be involved in this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg-pnGFbwMQ
My horror novel All My Colors is out now, published by Titan Books in the UK and the US.
My comic road trip thriller Go West is out, published by Unbound in the UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Go-West-David-Quantick/dp/1912618702/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=
Here are some of the other books I've written.
Sparks is an e-novel, described as "excellent" by Neil Gaiman.
The Mule is a strange comic novel which Jonathan Coe called "an offbeat and surprising comedy thriller".
And there are my two writing handbooks, How To Write Everything and How To Be A Writer. They're very useful.
I've also worked with John Panton at MeatBingo on several short films. This one, starring Rebecca Front as Valentina Tereshkova, is a particular favourite: https://vimeo.com/123826027
