Simon Doyle (he/him) was born and raised in County Limerick, Ireland. He discovered that he could travel the world on a shoestring by reading books at a very young age. When he won a local poetry competition at the age of nine, it sparked a lifetime love of words. But he swears never to write poetry again.
His first novel release was Runaway Train, book 1 of the Runaway Bay series.
When he is not writing, he enjoys reading and painting (Bob Ross eat your heart out). And he one day hopes to learn the violin, if only he had an ear for music. He has a background in data science and data analytics, and he has worked in financial regulation for over eight years, despite (or because of?) having studied English at University.
He has lived in Ireland, as well as England and, for a brief time, the United States.
He now lives on the west coast of Ireland with an extremely neurotic border collie, and Lucas, his human soulmate. They got married in 2022. They met in kindergarten – where all good stories begin.
