Emmet Lynch was born for the first time in 1968 in Carlow, Ireland. He is married to Isabella and father to Killian (aka Killer) and Zach (no aka yet!). He has a classical education in De La Salle Brothers Academy, and 3rd level education in Carlow RTC and Trinity College Dublin. His first job was as systems programmer for a large financial institution. You might say that his love of science fiction influenced his choice of career.
Emmet is a lover of swordplay, learner of Tae Kwon Do, is an ex lifeguard and qualified marksman, and his love of self taught heroes transfers to his writing. His favourite books include Lord of the Rings, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintaince, No-one Gets Out of Here Alive, The Bible, A Book of 5 Rings and everything by Ian M Banks.
