About the Author

Having spent his formative years in Ashford, Kent, Malcolm Bray decided from an early age that there must be other places. Discovering a similar mind in a girl from Boston, Mass, he finally settled with her in the west of Ireland. Attacked one night by the Muse some time later, Malcolm sidelined an outdoor life (forester, builder, farmer etc.) to launch himself on to the literary stage - well, he's won a couple of things and is in a few anthologies in Ireland and the UK. In the last seven years he has completed seven novels, several novellas and a multitude of short stories. Malcolm's latest novel, Dragon's Tooth, a sequel to The Noise-Makers, has just been published in Kindle form (February 2014).
