THE CAREER of a young Annascaul author has really taken flight this year with the launch of his second novel in 12 months.
Eamonn Hickson, a native of Lougher, unveiled his latest work, 'Angel of Death' to the public on Saturday December 14.
Eamonn's second self-published novel, the book is a supernatural drama about Emily Dunhurst, a young woman who has been tormented by dreams and visions from an early age.
"Emily overcomes her troubled youth to live a normal life – until the Angel of Death shows up at her grandmother's bedside!" Eamonn explained.
"She battles to save those who are dearest to her, but she soon finds out that Angels are hard to stop!"
Eamonn (26) originally qualified as a civil engineer but was left out of work following the collapse of the construction industry.
Having harbored a keen interest in creative writing for many years, instead of picking up his passport he picked up his pen.
The result was 'The History Maker', Eamonn's first novel which he self-published last December.
The online self-publishing revolution has opened doors for many Kerry writers, including Eamonn, who is focused on expanding his target audience across the globe by selling his books online as eBooks.
The young author, also a well-known footballer, is continuing to cultivate his craft and has spent the past year enrolled in a creative writing course in IT Tralee.
'Angel of Death' is currently available online in eBook format and a paperback version is expected to be available locally in the near future.
