Ken Mooney was born in Dublin in the middle of the 1980s; he still lives there. He holds an MA in English Studies from TCD, which he totally uses every day during his day-job...totally.

He's always been obsessed with stories, reading, writing and playing them; that explains the massive collection of books, comics, video games and discarded Word documents. His writing is a combination of all the things that he's passionate about, all the way through high-and-low-brow.

(Note from Ken: I don't log into Goodreads often, so best way to get in touch is via my website or Twitter.)

Who doesn’t love a good penis? Wait, don’t answer that question: there’s probably some sort of shame in your answer, the same type of shame I’m feeling for writing this piece. Not that penises themselves are shameful; it’s talking about them and showing them off that’s sort of frowned upon. Which is why it’s worth talking about this week’s episode [...]

Ken Mooney is 20% done with Invisible Monsters Remix: I have no idea how this is going. Reading the Remix version which reads like a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure type thing and it's sort of amazing because of it.

I have to be honest: I wanted to adore this book, but it just wasn't for me. Picture a world of hard-boiled detectives, but turn those detectives into magicians and the world being full of mythology: then you'll have an idea of this book.

I have never hated a writer more than hating Louise for the end of this book. And I don't want to hate someone who can write this book, but I hate it. I hate everything about it and I hate myself for hating it.

I only hate it because it's realistic.
