David Velasco


(Malaga, Spain) After graduating in Journalism at his hometown’s university, David Velasco worked in prominent media and television roles, in management and writing positions, without ever losing his vocation as a writer. Between 2008 and 2014 he served as an editor, which allowed him to understand the world of books. He is the author of The Neithel’s Manuscripts saga, which boasts three books that have achieved huge success in his native country: Sabine Vashanka, the Sorceress (vol. I), The Kingdom of a Hundred Moons (vol. II) and The Revenge of the King without a Throne (vol. III).

David Velasco also published an interactive gamebook in 2012, titled Heroes of Urowen (a bestseller in Spain and available in English), with which he took a new direction in his literary career. The author used a great deal of experience to create this work, applying more than fifteen years as a tireless Dungeon Master, and a habitual consumer of console and computer games, to create this fantasy adventure. The last project that surprised readers was Krynea, the Ninth Rune, a spectacular novel based on the video game Krynea, which has further consolidated his reputation as a skilled storyteller of great imagination.

In the same way, he has published the continuations of the gamebook Heroes of Urowen. Thus he gave shape to an independent work, whose plot runs parallel to that of the first book: Heroes of Urowen, Pirates I. In addition, 2017 also saw the light of day the following volume Heroes of Urowen, Pirates II.

Now David Velasco returns with Anunnaki Files, much more than a novel or a gamebook.

His latest gamebooks are Ouija Portal and The Druid’s Grimoire (which has 822 pages and 2000 sections) and he is already preparing new surprises with which to continue surprising readers.

Recently, David Velasco has created the Black Sphynx collection of solo role-playing games. Under that trademark, he has published a complete oracle and several other books, all of them available in English.

David Velasco is also part of the team of Harakiri: Blades of Honor, a spectacular board game, for which he has developed all the narrative part.

In addition, he is a translator of English video games and apps, including An Assassin in Orlandes and The Forest of Doom for developer Tin Man Games.

Finally, as an editor, David Velasco has published the gamebook The Legion Of Shadow (DestinyQuest) in Spain, and he has also published works for writers such as Kevin J. Anderson (Terra Incognita trilogy) and Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone (Fighting Fantasy gamebooks: Blood of the Zombies, House Of Hell and Howl of the Werewolf).
