David O’Sullivan was born in Mona Vale, Sydney Australia. He completed his schooling in Wagga Wagga before attending Macquarie University in Sydney completing a combined Arts Law degree. It was during his time at university that he began to write short stories, novels, and plays. David’s first novel, The Bomber, was released in 2015. After graduation, David started a company based in Temora developing properties.

David's second novel, Anvil Soul, born during his time in Temora, reflects his knowledge of life in small towns. As he said: “The only way you can truly know a setting is to live there, immerse yourself in the place. Know how the rain falls in winter and how the sun burns in summer.”
