Hey there! I’m Damian, an Anglo-Irish writer living in the UK. I write a mix of speculative and literary fiction which you can check out on this site.

What madness drove you to be a writer?
A long long time ago in a Fortune 500 far away, while on break between contracts, I decided to write a novel.
A year or so later, I realised that writing was what I wanted to do with my life. So I quit my job and went to study English Literature and Creative writing at Ruskin College, Oxford.
Surrounded by the ghosts of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, and regularly drinking in their regular hang-out, The Eagle and Child, it’s hardly surprising I got into writing speculative fiction
Writing science fiction and fantasy will always be a big part of what I do. I love thinking about and creating other worlds where I can let my characters run loose.
But you can’t live in a daydream all the time.
In what might seem like a complete counteraction to writing speculative fiction, I also write to the more literary side of the spectrum with gay-themed coming of age novels.
Fostering empathy has always been one of my goals in writing. It’s in my literary work where I’m best able to achieve this, alongside telling a damn good story.
Now I can mostly be found in the INKubator Discord writing community. If you’re an aspiring writer yourself, I thoroughly recommend you giving us a try.
