David Lyons was born in London, England and educated in the U.S., the Far East, and Europe. No doubt his peripatetic childhood influenced his first career choice. He became a lawyer, specializing in international law, globe-trotting and earning frequent flyer miles in great quantities. His first career flowed into the second rather naturally. Spending so much time on international flights and in quiet hotel rooms in foreign countries, David did a lot of reading. Then to pass the time, he tried writing. After years, David's avocation became his vocation. His journey has been --- and is with each new day --- fascinating.
