Possibly the most important thing you need to know about me is that I am a huge sci-fi, fantasy, romance, supernatural and mythology fan.
Novels, comics, films, TV shows … I love them all. If your work even touches upon one of these genres,
you can rest assured that you and I will have plenty to talk about!
My educational background, meanwhile, is in history. While my main research and past studies have focused on Irish history –
and I have worked on many books on the subject! – I also have a keen interest in world history, as well as in
academic assessments of modern literature and drama.
