Dave Laing was born into a farming family in Scotland. After ten years of boarding school in the highlands, he moved to London to begin his career in the transport industry. His first job was with a shipping company in the city. In his spare time, he joined the Territorial Army and London Scottish Rugby Club. He enjoyed his five years in London, but finally decided to see the world. He immigrated to Australia in 1969, via ship.

After six months in a dreary office job, he got itchy feet & packed his rucksack and spent 9 weeks hitch hiking New Zealand, then drove around Australia for another 6 months with a friend. Finally, he settled in Melbourne, and worked for 32 years in the Air Cargo Industry, in the city & Melbourne Airport Tarmac. He met Wendy across the tarmac during her first day at the airport.

Unfortunately, Dave Laing is now deceased.

Writers Exchange is a Christian publishing house, although we do publish many, many other genres and not all our authors are Christian:)

We have been publishing and selling books since 2000, but in 2017 we decided to sell MOST of our books exclusively from Amazon. A number of our books are also available from other retailers. We have made it very easy for you to find our books from whichever retailer you prefer, either in the "buy" links on each book page, but also by the Menu Item "Our Books by Retailer" which will show you our books at Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.

So what is here, that is not available at Amazon and other distributors?
* "Universe" pages that go into a lot more detail about the various fictional universes some of our authors have created,
* Free Short Stories by our authors (which will also be on our blog)
* upcoming: author interviews - which will also be on our blog (where you can get new content/releases emailed directly to you!)
* and other fun things as we think of them :)

We hope you enjoy!

We have supplied the address as a graphic, to prevent bots, so you will have to type it into your email program manually :)
