David Charlton splits his time between Calgary and Seoul. He writes and edits textbooks for an ESL publisher. When he gets the chance for more exciting pursuits, he works on archaeological projects in Mexico and Nicaragua. "Moon Over Yodok" is his first published story. It was inspired by Kang Chol-Hwan's real experiences in Yodok as recounted in The Aquariums of Pyongyang: Ten Years in the North Korean Gulag.
