I was born and raised in Dublin.
For as long as I can remember, I've loved reading. I've enjoyed making up stories for almost as long.
I decided I wanted to be a thriller writer when I was a teenager, after I stumbled across Lee Child's Killing Floor in an airport bookshop.
The novel had just come out. A sticker on the cover offered a money-back guarantee if the book didn't deliver.
I thought it must be a hell of a read if it came with a guarantee.
I never thought of asking for money back.
Instead, I thought I'd like to write page-turning thrillers too.
