David William Paley 1942-

David Paley belongs to the modern romantic realist school writing with a human dimension but often of sombre themes. His works offer inspiration to those seeking encouragement in despair and which are designed to lead the reader to the thought that the deepest sorrows can be mended when time is blended with a little hope.

He lives in UK.
