I live in Dublin, Ireland. Sometimes. Most times I live in my head, quite unaware of my surroundings – if you know what I mean… If you succeed in tracking Sean Walsh, please let me know, ok? I've been searching for him for years…
Quite some time ago I gave a workshop on Creative Writing in the College of Arts and Communication, Dublin county. I spoke without notes for over an hour, as is my wont, engaging the students from time to time in open discussion. Towards the end of the workshop I was asked what I myself was writing, what did I ambition for the future..?
I thought a wee while, then said – “I’d like to write a book consisting of monologue and dialogue, only. With little or no narrative. I don’t think it’s ever been done. I may not succeed – but it won’t be for the want of trying – giving it my best shot!..”
In 2012 – after much sweat and blood! – trial and error, drafts and still more drafts – it went on sale on Amazon – paperback and Kindle – my very first book: Notes on the Past Imperfect.
