Damian Vargas is an emerging author of action thrillers with a vein of dark humour.
Damian is a self-exiled Brit, living and working in Spain on the Costa del Sol. A child of the 1970s and 1980s, he was brought up on an entertainment diet of intrepid adventure novels, gritty crime dramas, epic war stories and low-budget British science fiction television.
Experiencing everyday life in southern Spain opened his eyes to the dark underworld that occurs (mostly) beyond the view of the annual influx of British and other holidaymakers. The regular criminal goings-on, coupled with the rich tapestry of life and stunning locations on ‘the Costa’, sparked a firm desire to write fast-paced action stories.
His first book, ‘Six Hard Days in Andalusia‘, was the first of these and was followed by the prequel, ‘Den Of Snakes‘. He is currently working on a third book, called, ‘A Dark Place’ and several more are already planned. His motto is “Wisdom Comes To Those Who Stray”. He has a love for indie/punk rock in dank seedy venues, a fascination with the number ’27’, once met David Hasselfhof while dressed up as Ron Burgandy, and harbours an intense dislike of spiders.
