Brian Cleary was born in 1966 in Dublin, Ireland where he lives with his wife, two kids and two dogs.

Brian began writing this novel in the 1980s but only got so far and didn't re-visit it until 20 years later.

In 2007 he started again but this time fate was to intervene.

He had written the first chapter on the computer and, unknown to him, his then seven year old daughter showed it to the babysitter, Brian's mother Maureen!

She was impressed and encouraged him to finally complete the story.

Nine years later, here we are!
