He asked pal Simon illustrate the book for him.
The book, named Bodger Rack, is the tale of a teenage distance runner. It will cost £9.99 with proceeds going to the Ecuador charity.
Dave and Simon will launch the book on March 23 at Frinton Gospel Chapel in Old Road, from 3pm.
Dave said: “We are hoping that people will come out and support us at the launch.
“We are trying to do good work in Ecuador and this is an important part of allowing us to build that up as much as possible.”
