About the Author: David Fisher

There is more than one author with this name

In 2004, David Dayan Fisher was living every actor's dream. He had successfully transitioned to Hollywood from London three years earlier, landed a role in National Treasure with Nicolas Cage, and was making better money than he ever had before.

There was just one problem. He was secretly miserable.

Fisher turned to alcohol to ease the pressure of Hollywood. But after an accidental run-in with a dog rescue group at an LA street fair, relief came from an unlikely source.

At the fair, a certain mutt immediately caught Fisher's eye. His childhood dogs had all been pedigrees, so he didnt think much of the mutts but as soon as he held Abel, something clicked. Fisher took his new mutt home that day, renamed him Burton after actor Richard Burton, and from that point on, gained a new perspective on life. It was enough to put the bottle down, and devote his energies to a new mission.

There have been two things in my life that literally hurt my heart - the death of my mother and going to a dog pound, says Fisher. If I could take every dog in, I would. My rescue mutts rescued me, and have given me more joy than anything else in life.

The story in Fishers upcoming childrens book, Puppy School is one of mutts and pedigrees, friendship and equality. Fifty percent of the books proceeds will go to dog rescue groups.

A London native, Fisher now lives in Hollywood with his two rescue dogs, Burton and Monkey. His resume includes National Treasure, 24, Medium, Charmed, Numb3rs and four seasons as a guest star on NCIS. "

Jasper Maskelyne was a world famous magician and illusionist in the 1930s. When war broke out, he volunteered his services to the British Army and was sent to Egypt where the desert war had just begun. He used his skills to save the vital port of Alexandria from German bombers and to 'hide' the Suez Canal from them. He invented all sorts of camouflage methods to make trucks look like tanks and vice versa. On Malta he developed 'the world's first portable holes': fake bomb craters used to fool the Germans into thinking they had hit their targets. His war culminated in the brilliant deception plan that won the Battle of El Alamein: the creation of an entire dummy army in the middle of the desert.
