About this author

Joe McCoubrey is a former Irish newspaper editor who is now a full-time action thriller writer. His first full-time job after leaving college was as a showroom salesman for a car-parts company. At coffee break on the first morning he walked to the nearest cafeteria, and kept on walking - he never went back! At the turn of the seventies he joined the Civil Service based at Stormont, the seat of the Northern Ireland Government, and watched behind the scenes as some of the country's most momentous events unfolded. These were the early dark days of the 'troubles' - events that reverberated around the world, and somehow served to push him towards his real passion of writing. He became a journalist, later a Newspaper Editor, and then a partner in ...more

Dillon  Asher Joe, thank you for the Goodreads friend connect.
Wishing you the very best!


Absolutely Kate Seems to me, folks should have some appropriate return greeting when they hear an admired author has become their friend (once again) around this GoodlyReading salon.

So ~ conjure in your mind if you will, a lovely carafe of sangria and Dave Brubeck jazz -- a stack of books and our repartee in between.

Glad you're out there -- uh, I mean here.
~ your colleague, Absolutely*Kate
