This is a blog full of ramblings on my experience writing and the quest
to get published,
book reviews, studying and any other things I can think of.
Here’s a bit about myself (not that you asked). I’m from County Meath and I studied English and classics in NUI Maynooth and did an M. Phil in Creative Writing in the Oscar Wilde Centre, Trinity College, Dublin. I’m currently looking for work to keep the wolves from the door and the electricity on so I can keep writing.
I read and write anything, including poetry, drama, short and long prose, horror, literary and speculative fiction. But I’ll always prefer prefer fantasy and science fiction. I am also interested in videogames, painting, drawing, RPGs, swimming and field hockey. The Header for this blog is a painting I did in 2010 for the cover of The Spaces Between: Collected Poems. The background image was taken by my friend, Eoin Connolly. Check out his website to see more.
My first novel, Beggars Belief, is currently submitted with a few agents and I’m waiting for news. I have started drafting a second novel provisionally titled The Waiting Place. I live off coffee and frequently fall asleep at my keyboard.
