I have spent my adult life in academia and have notched up four degrees. I have a PhD in informational privacy research from TCD (Trinity College Dublin). I have published numerous academic papers and book chapters in IS security and I was Head of Research at Escher Group Holdings for five years. I taught Information Systems and Management for eight years in TCD and for three years in UCD (University College Dublin). I have always loved books and the printed word. In fact, one of my degrees is in English and French Literature.
However, it is only in the last three or so years that I have been bitten by the fiction-writing bug.
