I am the author of The Machinery, the first in a trilogy of fantasy novels acquired by HarperVoyager UK. That’s me, over there!
I’m from Derry, in the North West of Ireland, and work as a freelance journalist. I was previously a News Editor at The Wall Street Journal, where I edited the business section of the European edition. Before that I was the Europe Editor of Jane’s Defence Weekly and have worked as a reporter in my hometown for the Derry News.
My first known work was a collection of poems on monsters, written for Halloween when I was eight; it is sadly lost to civilisation. I live in Portstewart with my wife Sarah, son Finn and daughter Evie.
