Born in Dublin, I graduated from University College Dublin and later qualified as a Chartered Accountant. I spent six years working with international banks in the City of London and then returned to live and work in Dublin.
Later I was fortunate to be abandoned in Malaga Airport for ten hours, where I had an idea for a tale of epic human endurance on Europe's low fares airlines. Ruinair was published in Ireland by Gill & Macmillan in 2008 and was published in the UK by HarperCollins in 2009.
The Little Book of Mick was published in Ireland by Gill & Macmillan in 2008. It was published as 'Plane Speaking' in the UK by Aurum Press in 2010.
The sequel book to Ruinair, Ruinairski, a tale of low fares in Central & Eastern Europe, was published in Ireland by Gill & Macmillan in 2009.
