Lionel Davidson was my Father. He was a multi best selling novelist and many times literary award winner.

Some of his books have been made into films, options placed on others - it's quite a tangled web, which is slowly being untangled.

Like many writers and artists my father lived in two very separate worlds, a physical world and an ethereal world. With me it was almost entirely in the ethereal world. This made for an odd and often quite fraught relationship, but artistically we were very close and I was involved in most of the books.

With regards to film adaption I am preparing feasibility and short scenarios for many of the books and for queries and information please be in contact.

A complete list of the books, brief synoposis, and some background information can be found here

There is a separate website for him at
