I’m Dave Goodman. I write posts about fiction writing, reading, travel, the outdoors, and the digital world.

I’m a novelist and short story writer. I am represented by Harry Illingworth of DHH Literary.

I’m @WordsByGoodman on Twitter.

I try to get out in the hills as often as I can, which isn’t as often as I’d like. I spend too much money on camping gear and then don’t use it enough.

Here’s what I’m up to right now.

I’m a user experience designer in my day job. I also do some freelance outdoor instruction work. Check out my work page for more.


I live in East Lothian, Scotland, just outside Edinburgh. It’s a beautiful place. You should totally visit.
