About Brian O'Hare

Brian O'Hare, MA, Ph.D., is a retired assistant director of a large regional college of further and higher education. Married, three children, ten grandchildren, one great grandchild. He plays golf three times a week off a ten handicap and does a lot of voluntary work. Any writing he has previously
done was academic...very much restricted to a very specific readership. Several articles in educational journals were followed by a number of book-length reports for the Dept. of Education and the University of Ulster. He has also written an interesting biography of a man who daily performs amazing miracles of healing...The Miracle Ship. That is currently available in Amazon's Kindle bookstore. Hopefully those who read it will spread the word and write reviews to help John's message to reach the hearts of many, many people.

Brian had a liver disease since childhood which resulted in him taking early retirement a number of years ago. In 2002 he had a liver transplant but is strong and healthy now. He continued to do academic writing well into his retirement and followed that with a memoir about his liver transplant, dealing with the physical, emotional and spiritual experiences that came from that period in his life (A Spiritual Odyssey, published by Columba Press, Dublin).

Recently he experienced a desire to write fiction. Hence Fallen Men. It is a story about three priests...but it is religious in much the same way Thornbirds was religious. He has also finished a second book. It's quite different from Fallen Men... a detective mystery inspired by an old 14th century painting of the Last Judgement. It's called "The Doom Murders" available on Kindle. He is currently writing a third book, "The 11.05 Killings" featuring the same detectives as in The Doom Murders.

Also now available on Kindle is the story of Brian's liver transplant and the growth in spirit he experienced as he waited for almost a year, not knowing if he was going to live or die. See: "A Spiritual Odyssey [Diary of an Ordinary Catholic]"

Since the entries above were posted, there have been some changes to my writing life and fortunes. I have found a publisher, a lovely lady called Carly McCracken who is the owner of Crimson Cloak Publishing. CCP is prepared to publish all my writing in the traditional way. The first paperback, The Miracle Ship, is already published and is available from Amazon, Smashwords, Ingrams, Crimson Cloak Publishing, and some selected bookshops. The Doom Murders and Fallen Men will be available before the end of 2015. My recent sequel to The Doom Murders, i.e. The 11:05 Murders has now been completed and is due for publication sometime early in 2016 And, oh yes, Fallen Men has won the New Apple 2015 Top Medallist Honours for excellence in writing in the General Fiction category

And in February, 2017, I submitted the third in the Sheehan series to Crimson Cloak. It is called The Coven Murders and is due for publication in or around May 2017. It is something of a departure from the previous two in that it also has a substantial occult dimension. I think, however, that this will be a one-off and that future books in the series will be back to the ordinary police procedurals. Certainly the fourth book that I am now working on is perfectly normal: The Justice Murders.
