My name is David Charles and I probably met you out somewhere. Thanks for stopping by!

I’m the co-writer of BBC radio sitcom Foiled. I also write for the Center for International Forestry Research, The Bike Project and the stupendous Thighs of Steel. I do bike touring and nature walks. Sometimes I teach other people how to walk too. I also have a reputation for stupid experiments, rejection therapy, and solidarity with refugees. Check the blog for more.

Just to make sure you’ve definitely got the right person, here’s a fairly recent picture of me looking trustworthy:


I don’t do social media, but I’d love to stay in touch somehow.

If you want to passively absorb my wit and wisdom, I’d be thrilled if you sign up for The David Charles Newsletter, published every Friday. For 23% of readers, it’s the highlight of their week. I write another newsletter about reading called Books Make Books (they do, you know).

The best way for you to contact me is by sending me an SMS or Whatsapp (you’ve got the number) or drop me a message right here:
