About the Author
My name is Noel Coughlan. I am married and have a daughter. I live in the west of Ireland. From a young age, I was always writing a book. Generally, the first page over and over. Sometimes, I even reached the second page before I had shredded the entire copy book. In my teenage years, I wrote some poetry, some of which would make a Vogon blush. When I was fourteen, I had a dream. It was of a world where the inhabitants believed that each hue of light was a separate god, and that matter was simply another form of light. I tinkered with the idea for a couple of decades, putting together mythologies, histories, maps etc. but world building isn't worth much without a gripping story. And then I finally found one, a tale so compelling I had to write it, The Golden Rule Duology. I also write other fantasy, science fiction, and horror stories.
