The bit about me

Hallo there. I’m a fiction writer and design & advertising copywriter.  What Becomes Of Us, and The Heart of Everything published by Hachette, are available in all good bookshops doncher know. I won the UCD Maeve Binchy Travel Award in 2014, Hennessy First Fiction Award in 2015 and the Irish Writers Centre Jack Harte Bursary in 2016. Have a read about the novels here and on various posts such as this one; my other fiction bits ‘n’ bobs here; and about my copywriting work here.

I have an MFA in Creative Writing from UCD and am represented by Margaret Halton at United Agents. If you’d like to get in touch then drop me a line: or @hmckervey on twitter.


Here’s my mugshot. That big yellow
yoke is the six-tonne lamp
at the top of the Fastnet lighthouse.
The General Synopsis At Midnight
will explain why, thanks to the
2014 Maeve Binchy Travel Award,
I’m next to it.
