It is with a heavy heart that I report that David J Rodger took his own life at the weekend.
I have been stunned and, of course, terribly saddened by this news.
His guest post on this blog is here: http://brsbkblog.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/todays-guest-post-is-by-david-rodger.html
Tom has some very nice words on his website - http://www.thomasdavidparker.com/for-david/
Jo Hall has also some nice words here: https://hierath.wordpress.com/2015/11/24/david-j-rodger-1970-2015/
David was in deep pain with anxiety and depression yet he hid it so well. Only on our last meeting did I feel like something was wrong. Yet even then he was full of plans, his last mail to me looking towards the future. David and I (with Tom Parker) were planning on working on a project together next year.
He will be sorely missed by the Bristol writing community, and of course his friends and family.
Rest in Peace!
