About Simon Doyle

A picture of author Simon Doyle

We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.

Anais Nin

Simon Doyle (he/him) was born and raised in County Limerick, Ireland. He discovered that he could travel the world on a shoestring by reading books at a very young age. When he won a local poetry competition at the age of nine, it sparked a lifetime love of words. But he swears never to write poetry again.

His first novel release is Runaway Train, book 1 of the Runaway Bay series.

He studied Literature at university and when he isn’t writing, he can normally be found curled up by the open fire with a good book (got a recommendation? Let me know!).

He writes gay romance stories because he is a hopeless romantic. His stories are mostly sweet/clean, with fade-to-black sex scenes — the kind of stories he has no problem letting his mother read (and she does; she’s his number one fan [insert Kathy-Bates-in-Misery meme here]).

He has worked in data analytics and the data science industry for a number of years and he loves percentages (78% of people will not believe him).

He lives with a neurotic rescue dog, and Lucas, his human soulmate. They met in kindergarten. Where all good stories begin.
