He doesn't do any of that any more. Instead, he writes fulltime, either as a freelancer, or else on fiction.
Eamonn has collected a PhD, an MA, an assortment of teaching qualifications, and a BSc along the way. He really likes biltong, and has recently returned to learning to play piano, something he abandoned when he was about seven and has regretted since.

Dan Matlock is out of jail. He’s got a choice. Stay or leave. Go back to where it all went wrong, or just get out of the county. Disappear. Start again as someone else. But it’s not as simple as that.
There’s the matter of the man he killed. It wasn’t murder, but even so. You tell that to the family. Especially when that family is the Mintons, who own half of what’s profitable and two-thirds of what’s crooked between the Wolds and the coast. Who could have got to Matlock as easy as you like in prison, but who haven’t touched him. Not yet.
Like Matlock found out in prison, there’s no getting away from yourself. So what’s the point in not facing up to other people?
It’s time to go home.

A novel for fans of CJ Sansom, Hilary Mantel, and Manda (MC) Scott, The Prospect of This City is a dark historical thriller with a blade concealed in its sleeve.
The stories here are linked by a common theme – the choices people make or that others have made for them. A young woman makes a life-changing decision over the course of a lunch; a couple in a futuristic world have to decide whether to embrace real contact or settle for the familiar technology. And, in one story, a sister revises her relationship with her younger brother in light of his disability. This anthology reflects the best of the writing and, in the end, what makes the tale is the telling of it. When voices are strong and the prose rhythmic and lyrical, the stories that emerge are the ones we remember.
This anthology comprises the best stories from the long-list. Several of the writers have had work published or have won other story awards.
