John O’Keeffe. The Author
John is a medical doctor working in a general practice in Donnybrook, a suburb of Dublin. Born and bred in Dublin, he went to school in Blackrock College and studied medicine in UCD.
He spent three years in a General Practice training program in London, after which he spent a couple of months in Israel before travelling to Australia. There he worked as a GP for two years, mainly in Sydney and in Darwin, something unusual at that time but now seemingly the norm for all recently qualified doctors.
John lives in Dublin and is married to Yvonne, an art historian and lecturer in art. His daughter is studying medicine, and his son is still in school.
This is his first novel, but another is being written.
