I’m an author, journalist, playwright and screenwriter. My first crime novel, a vigilante thriller called Even Flow, was published in September 2012 by Roundfire Books. A second, the noir-style The Polka Dot Girl, came out in January 2013. My first book, the non-fiction GAA Confidential, was published by Hodder. I also released a comic novel, Cold! Steel! Justice!!!, as an e-book under the name Alexander O’Hara.
For more than a decade I have written reviews, features and opinion columns for several papers, including The Irish Independent, The Sunday Times and The Guardian. Several of my short stories have appeared in literary journals, in Ireland and the US. My first play is being read by several theatre companies, and a collection of stories is being adapted for a feature by a young film director. I have just written a Young Adult novel inspired by Irish mythology. I live in the west of Ireland.
