We are delighted to announce that we have signed the supremely talented Eoghan Egan for latest dark thriller, The Other Side of Fear. Eoghan is the latest author to join the burgeoning Red Dog kennel, and we're delighted to have him.
The Other Side of Fear, set in modern day Irish Midlands, tells the story of reporter, Sharona Waters, who gets pulled into a people trafficking story, only to find that her desire to expose the most sordid secrets collides with a ruthless gang whose only aim is to protect their business. At all costs.
It's brutal, it's visceral, and it made the whole submissions team cry. We can't wait to show you all. In the meantime, welcome Eoghan to the family, the way only you know how. Here's a little more about the man of the moment:
A native of Co. Roscommon, Ireland, Eoghan wrote his first story aged nine. At college, he studied Computer Programming, works in Sales Management & Marketing, but his passion for reading and writing remain. Eoghan’s stories were shortlisted for the 2018 Bridport Short Story Prize, and Listowel’s 2019 Bryan McMahon Short Story Award Competition. Others have been published in various anthologies. He has also completed two crime fiction novels in a planned trilogy set in the Irish Midlands, and has started work on the third.
A graduate of Maynooth University’s Creative Writing Curriculum and Curtis Brown’s Edit & Pitch Your Novel Course, Eoghan divides his time between Roscommon and Dublin.
Eoghan constantly explores ways to increase his knowledge in the art of writing. He enjoys attending literary festivals and is excited about the prospect of getting back to face-to-face discussions with readers and writers. He’s also a heavy metal fan, and, post Covid, can’t wait to headbang at a rock gig.
