David Doherty-Jebb was born in Germany, but was raised in Lurgan in Northern Ireland. During this time, he became an avid reader of the magical, monstrous and mysterious, starting a lifelong love of the weird and geekish.

After studying at the University of Stirling, he spent a few years helping Spaniards develop a Lurgan accent in Madrid as an English teacher.

However, on his return to our fair island, he knuckled down to become a writer in earnest, with a lot of support and friendship from the Belfast Writers’ Group.

He currently lives in Newtownards with his husband.
