Garrett Carr - Author

32-year-old Garrett Carr comes from a town in the west of Ireland a bit like Ballydog.
He has worked as a cook, a fruit-picker, a brickie, a web-developer, but mainly as an
illustrator. He has worked for governmental agencies in his native Ireland and for
development agencies in Latin America. He now lives in Belfast, where he contributes
to the city's burgeoning literary scene with publications, exhibitions, and readings of
his work. He has been studying at the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry where he
was taught by author Ian Sansom. This is the first book in a trilogy about May,
Andrew and Ewan - and their battles with monsters old and new.
