JM Donellan is an author, poet, musician, voice actor, radio DJ and teacher. He was almost devoured by a tiger in the jungles of Malaysia, nearly died of a lung collapse in the Nepalese Himalayas, fended off a pack of rabid dogs with a guitar in the mountains of India and was sexually harassed by a half-naked man whilst standing next to Oscar Wilde's grave in Paris.

The big milestones come around once in a while and those are nice but it's the little victories that will stop you from giving up and becoming an investment banker and amateur taxidermist or something horrid like that.

Triple announcement pew pew pew!!!

Announcement the first:

Killing Adonis will be available as an audiobook on July 12! I absolutely adore audiobooks, and it’s been a dream of mine to have one for a long time. I’m thrilled to have my novel brought to the audio world thanks to the good folks at Blackstone. You can (and should) preorder it now and shove it into your earholes.

Announcement the next one:
My new novel the Fabulist
