About the Author

Martin Waddell

As a child

I've been blown up, buried alive and had cancer as an adult, and survived all these experiences, so I'm a very lucky man. I live where I lived as a child, and nearly all my stories come from things that have happened to me here, at the foot of the Mountain of Mourne.

As an artist
I work in an old stone barn beside my home, and dream my stories in the garden and on long walks on the beach in front of my house. I never write anywhere else. This is where I belong.

I scored a hat trick on my debut in adult football, but wound up as a goalkeeper. I used to run a junk stall. I like bringing up egg-shaped stones from the beach to my garden. I like apple tarts. I hate onions. I’m a happy man
