Philip O’Connor (known to almost everyone as Phil, except his mother when he misbehaves) is a 40-year-old Irish writer who has lived in Stockholm for the last dozen years or so, where he owns and runs a communications company.
This allows him to work with some great people and spread his wings into photography, fim-making and social media. He is passionate about Ireland and in particular the Irish abroad, and his first book ‘A Parish Far From Home’ was published by Gill and McMillan in September of 2011.
Sarah Maria Griffin has been writing since she could hold a pen. The holder of a masters degree in creative writing, her first collection, ‘Follies’, came out in 2011. She is a former Dublin Literary Death Match champion and has several projects on the go which will see daylight in 2012. She also loves video games. A lot.
