Member Info

Feb 2008

I was born in Sligo, Ireland, in 1969. I am the author of THE BIG O (2007) and EIGHTBALL BOOGIE (2003). For the last year I have hosted a blog dedicated to Irish crime fiction at Crime Always Pays. I now live in Wicklow with my wife and our baby girl. THE BIG O will be published in the U.S. by Harcourt in September '08. Life would be perfect I were allowed to own a cat, or be owned by one.
