David Conway was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1963 and raised in Southend-on-Sea, Essex and Dublin. The recipient of an old-school Irish Catholic education, Conway dropped out of school and worked in Dublin for several years before becoming a founder member of—and original vocalist with—the alternative rock band My Bloody Valentine.
Leaving Dublin, Conway relocated with the band to Holland and West Berlin where the group performed extensively and recorded their debut album before settling in London in the mid 1980s. After a few more years, recording three 12-inch vinyl eps and performing around the UK and Europe, Conway left My Bloody Valentine.
Working various day jobs, Conway began to concentrate on writing fiction, primarily in the horror and science fiction genres in the style frequently referred to as the New Weird. His first short stories appeared in anthologies published by Creation Books and Oneiros Books. Subsequently he has produced seven novels and a number of comic books published by Harris Comics, Anarchy Studios and Marvel Comics.
Conway currently lives in London.
