Gary Donnelly

Gary Donnelly is a writer, blogger and teacher originally from west Belfast, who read History at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge and has lived and worked in London since the late 1990s. Blood Will Be Born, the first book in the DI Sheen crime thriller series, was published by Endeavour Media in 2017 and soon after as an audiobook by Isis Publishing Ltd. Gary writes dark, pacy, crime fiction set in Northern Ireland, but with a universal relevance and appeal. He has recently completed the second book in the series and he’s working on the third as well as a stand-alone. In his time he’s been a Belfast cemetery manager, a business conference organiser in the City, a council gardener in Wembley, and gained a further degree in Psychology, which he now teaches in North London. Gary is married to the lovely Sacha with whom he has two non-returnable children. He can cook up a storm and play a mean guitar (after a few drinks).
