Back to the Gaff was first published in 2014 by Roadside Fiction. It was given a new look in 2018 and republished complete with a cover designed by Kevin Bohan Art at The Icon Factory.
The collection of stories explores the lives of eccentric characters found propping up a bar somewhere in Dublin or nearby. There are tales of scandalous nights out leading to the inevitable trip back to the gaff (place of residence) where the depravity continues either over a bottle of Irish whiskey or the edge of a bed in some sub standard rented abode.
He is seeking representation for future writing projects many of which are already complete.
