David lives in Perth and began writing at 19, when he should have been studying for a BEng degree. Nonetheless, after also having laboured through a PhD to become a tenured academic at Curtin University, he has finally published the thing he started writing half a lifetime ago.

When not thinking about robots (and often even when he is) he teaches and creates courses on coding and software engineering. Some of the real-world facets of software engineering pop up in his fiction too, but there he is principally interested in the philosophy and societal consequences of artificial intelligence.

(He is not actually an AI expert, though he will probably convince himself that he is eventually.)

Science Fiction

Kasih is a robotic child drawn into a project to discover her secrets, and into a war that threatens all humanity, including her own. The murder of her family by Union troops in Bandung leaves the rebels’ robotics experts, Losana Maraiwai and Wei Dingxiang, with nobody to explain Kasih’s design but Kasih herself.

In Darwin, Dingxiang suspects a magic trick may explain away her human-like artificial intelligence. In Beijing, Union politician Gabriel da Costa fears an extinction-level technology. The rebels, including Kasih’s original rescuers, Paul Kanner and Debra Hall, are powerless in the face of a new army of robotic soldiers based on her design.

Kasih must fight back against the fate others have determined for her, and for the world, and Dingxiang needs her ingenuity to solve the very conundrum that her existence represents. For Kasih to save her human friends, she must help them destroy her own kind.
