about me

I have been a Butlins Redcoat, a hot air balloonist and a European tour guide.

I have traversed Africa and lived in France, Germany, USA and England.

I am passionate about writing and creating. Apart from my book, Berlin Nights, posted on this site, I have also written a travel memoir and a kids' poetry book; all unpublished.

I want to share my writing with others. I want to write a play, a screenplay, a number one record and a speech for President Obama.

I am married to a wonderful California girl. We have two kids, a daughter aged 9 and a son aged 9 months. We also have a neurotic dog.

7 FISH AND 3 HERMIT CRABS HAVE INEXPLICABLY DIED ON MY WATCH!

I want one day for my kids to tell others, "My daddy is a writer," and for them and their friends to think that I am cool! I think that I am cool....ish.

Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my profile and read my book. I hope that something I have written makes you laugh.

To all the talented authors out there:

KEEP DREAMING
KEEP WRITING

Berlin Nights

David Paul Scarlett

Take a broken hearted Englishman, a purple hippy, a large breasted nympho, and The Chipmunk, set them in Berlin and watch the chaos ensue.


This contemporary comedy finds Matthew Masters, a rather awkward Englishman, plunging into a crazy new life in gritty Berlin. Matthew, after all, has nothing to lose. After finding his girlfriend (Her) in bed with another man, Berlin seems like the perfect antidote. But try as he might, he cannot get Her off his mind.

Matthew ends up in one crisis after another. A couple of sleeping girls, a rabid rat and an uncontrollable erection are always going to spell trouble. He needs a new woman and fast. But hippy Bruno is the boss’s frustrated wife, large breasted Angel is his roommate’s lover and Fleur is too much of a mystery. Matthew’s acquaintances are no better. His boss is struggling with his sexuality, his roommate is a Communist lothario and his drug dealer talks in a strange psychobabble.

A running feud with his ex East German Secret Police neighbour adds to his problems, but through it all he decides that the woman of his dreams is The Chipmunk. Two problems: she is pregnant and her crazy ex boyfriend is in town. With the help of an unlikely ally, Matthew rescues The Chipmunk from her deranged ex and wins her heart.

Michael, Firstly you are well and truly shelved sir. I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did, mainly because I am a bit tired, but you instantly took me back to the war. Now I am only 38, but it reminded me of Dick Barton Special Agent a little. My Dad has told me about listening to that. I ... view book

Karen, So I finally got round to reading some of your book. Disclaimer: I have a 9 year old and a wife who would probably love it, but it is not the sort of book I would choose to read to my daughter. This has nothing to do with the book itself or your writing style, just my personal taste. But... view book

Katrina, You might like or hate this comment, but it is meant as a big compliment: You might have uncovered the new Adrian Mole. Oh I know that they are different characters and different sexes, but I am just thinking of the easiness of the read, the likeability of the character and how much both a... view book

Ebbsy, Give up with this book. Go back to the Tardis. JUST KIDDING. I love it my man. No sure if I would necessarily have chosen this book in a store, but I have read the first 3 chapters and you have me hooked. So many good things: the foreign setting, a dangerous setting in the jungle, the main p... view book

Heather, I am going to start with a couple of disclaimers. 1. I have had a hard week and am tired, but I have been promising to read people's books so I thought that I would start with yours. 2. This is not the sort of book that I would normally read. But in Authonomy Land I am determined to read... view book
