How to Build a Responsive Author Website

David James Ault

Having worked as a marketing manager in London during the nineties, where he also completed his Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing, David James Ault decided to leave the rat race in 2000, head east and forge a new career as an online marketer. It was during this time that he published his first book.

As a British ex-pat living in Slovakia, David has set up online businesses and written non-fiction books in a number of different niches, most notably freelance translating, ESL and all things Slovak. He also taught Business English to Slovak companies and private individuals and lectured at universities and other educational institutions, where he developed his passion for teaching.

Currently, from his mountain home in the heart of Europe, David is teaching online courses to over 10,000 students, mainly in the self-publishing niche, and is half-way through writing his first series of YA fiction novels. For more details on this course and instructor, click here.
