Emmet, in a nutshell
Born and raised in Ireland, I moved to Australia after meeting my lovely wife, Stevie. First to Sydney via Wollongong, I have most recently settled in Melbourne.
While waiting for my residency, my wife challenged me to read a book a day until I could stay. I didn’t realise this would take ten months. I reviewed each of the books here (while also volunteering part-time), which sparked a long dormant passion for writing on a professional basis.
I write lots - researched non-fiction, journalistic articles, editorial, fiction, genre, comic scripts, content for online, technical writing and corporate styles.
I am also an experienced proofreader and editor, emcee and podcast host and producer.
In my spare time I enjoy watching obscure and ridiculous films, drinking fancy pants beers, and enjoying the culinary delights Melbourne has to offer.
