About the Author

Born in Waterford, Ireland, in 1981, I later moved up to Galway in '88. There I attended St. Pat's primary school before serving my five year sentence at St. Joseph's secondary. After my five year stretch in school, I got out on bail with my mediocre result card, and actually continued to write, having enjoyed it in english class. This surprised even me. I wrote short stories, the odd poem, and even a few songs. God-awful ones, but I tried it nonetheless. Writing is writing after all - be it a Facebook status or a 1000 page novel. It was only in October 2002, did my little writing hobby really change the course of my life. I'd begun working on a fantasy called 'Kaddareth'. In the meantime I was doing a creative writing course at Kilroy's College, Dublin. I learned a lot during that course. My tutor, Eileen Casey, was especially supportive. A true model for aspiring writers, and she is an extremely talented author and mentor to many, having written such works as 'Snow Shoes' and 'Drinking the colour blue'. However, I will never forget the day I was asked to present them with the opening pages of a sample novel. Thinking nothing of it, I began... I wrote through the night. Red Bull cans scattered about my desk lamp. By the time I was done, I was well beyond the assignment's word allowance. The idea was just too vast for a simple 1,500 word exercise. But I liked what I'd written so much that I didn't want to just send it adrift, nor could I edit it because the details were just too damn essential to the plot. So I contacted the college the following morning and asked if I could exceed it, just this once - with sugar on top. As expected, no such permsission was granted, which was perfectly fair (and to this day I'm glad!) So I put that story to one side, submitted some other 'thrown-together' piece, and straight-away returned to the other. That piece was the beginnings of 'The Other of One'... I have since ditched Kaddareth and have continued on this course; adding on further installments to (what has become known as) 'The Lythiann Series' as I go. Best of all, it has been so well received! And with a little luck, even more people will get to read it in the future. People like you. I only hope you enjoy it as much, because if you do, then I will have a whole other world waiting for you to explore...
