“You need to have some chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”
David Jordan writes out of Cork, Ireland, where he was born and bred. He has been writing all his life, but it wasn’t until 2016, with the Chronicles of Dan Lee O’Brien, that his talent for stories really kicked in.
As a writer, he believes in work and discipline – these are the means by which we attract the muse.
He also believes in the power of story, a power that is harnessed through ingenuity and imagination.
He is a big fan of mythology as it is a rich source of symbolism and association that allows him to play. Indeed, work and play are the two ethics that mean anything to him as a writer. He likes to stir up mythology, which gives his writing an energy that will delight the reader.
He also draws inspiration from the early work of WB Yeats, Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey as well as contemporary writers such as Neil Gaiman, Clive Barker and Stephen King.
He writes poetry and has had a book of verse published entitled, The End..

Sounds good. I read a fair bit of Celt stories when I was younger centered around Finn Mcool, kelpies and the likes.
Yeah, I remember reading about Finn McCool too. The salmon of knowledge and that. There is great imagination in the myths.
