It’s episode 170 with Eamon Somers, debut author of Dolly Considine’s Hotel a new book set in Ireland during the 1980’s and 1950’s. Eamon has lots to say about his approach to writing, his path to publication and getting to grips with self promotion and social media when you think of yourself as shy and retiring.
Eamon began his lifelong interest in learning about storytelling with classes at the People’s College in 1970s Dublin, before going on to study at London’s Goldsmiths and later Birkbeck College. His short stories have been published in literary magazines including Tees Valley Writer, Automatic Pilot, and Chroma.
