Welcome to my website, such as it is. This page is undergoing a slow, major revamp. 
You can access my books by clicking on the covers to the right.
 No fancy graphics or photos here, yet. Just information about where you can find all my books and stories, Thrillers (supernatural and otherwise) and mysteries. Plus links to were they are available and first pages to read. Click the cover images on the right to go to the individual pages.

Please post reviews of my books. Reviews help readers find good books. Thanks for your support!


My current WIP is Windhaven, a survival at sea novel. — A 70 foot yacht racing around the world is hit by a huge rogue wave in the Southern Ocean. With no engine or communications the remaining crew must survive thousands of miles of inhospitable ocean.

Windhaven: A survival at Sea Novel


My novel Ancient Mariners has been reissued with a new title, Girl at Sea, and a new cover. Same book inside so reviews of AM apply to Girl at Sea.

Ancient Mariners (now Girl at Sea) review:

“Death is a silent companion on this quest for freedom and revenge. It’s there at every turn guiding Beth to vengeance for the injustice that no one has ever righted. Now, out on the sea where she is most at home with her friend and mentor Silas, Beth will follow death’s lead until she claims her due.”

David Burton is an American writer living in sunny Southern California. He traveled by motorcycle through Mexico, US, Canada and Alaska. From motorcycles he turned to the ocean, building and sailing his own boats to Mexico, Tahiti, Hawaii, and through the Panama Canal to Florida. He spent a lot of time reading while on the water, so he decided to write books he would have wanted to read at sea. Having swallowed the anchor he now mops floors and collects trash for money, writes for a living, and has become a (temporarily?) unrequited sailor.
