Ian was born in a small harbor town in southwest Ireland. In an effort to be cliche his parents moved the family to New York when he was thirteen. Once a promising up-and-comer in the world of competitive eating, his career was cut short by an ACL injury. He now resides in Florida with his dogs and drives a truck for a living, but is crossing his fingers and hoping his writing career will earn him enough money that he can tell his boss where to stick it.
Ian's second novel, One Undead Step, has garnered much critical acclaim. He is currently working on a third stand-alone novel, developing a series, writing for Zombie Guide Magazine, and squeezing in the occasional round of disc golf.
