My books

My latest book is The Driving Force, a collection of short stories on a theme of movement (whether actual or metaphorical). Other published work includes Pretend We’re Dead, a novel about a group of slackers hanging out in mid-1990s Cork City; !!SuperHyperMEGASTAR!! (2020), a comedy which crosses Cyrano de Bergerac and The X-Factor; Devil Hang Over Me, a tight, menacing psychological thriller (2020); Red Raven, a Young Adult urban fantasy (2020); YA mystery Shiver the Whole Night Through (2014); The Polka Dot Girl (2013), a noir-style detective story with a twist (all the characters are women); and Even Flow, a thriller about a gang of feminist vigilantes (2012).

In 2007 I brought out a non-fiction book called GAA Confidential, and released a comic novel as an e-book (Cold! Steel! Justice!!!) in 2011. Earlier this year one of my short stories was included in Brevity is the Soul, a collection of comic tales from Liberties Press. My books have received excellent reviews, which you can read on the right-hand side of my homepage.

See more on each by hovering on the “My Books” link above, and using the drop-down menu. Any books not already published are available for submission to publishers (including those released on Kindle by myself). Email darraghmcmanus (AT) yahoo (DOT) com
