John Kane

Dublin, Ireland


My favourite type of book is fiction. The darker the better.
I have always been a big Stephen King and Dean Koontz fan, but in recent years I have come across some fascinating writers. No more so than John Connolly, author of the Charlie Parker Novels.
John's storylines and attention to his characters is amazing. I would recommend him to anybody who likes a good , dark thriller with just a hint of the supernatural.
I am currently in the process of being published with Rosedog Books. My novel is called "The Final Sacrament" and involves one man's struggle to save his daughter from a serial killer while fighting to overcome his childhood nightmares as the story takes a religious twist. The book is due out in May 2009.
I have been writing this novel for the past five years and hope that I can build on it by getting my second book published. Hopefully, by a main stream publisher- We live in hope.
I have also just started reading Jonathan Maberry recently and he seems to be another gem, but if anybody out there can recommend a good author of the John Connolly, Stephen King ilk I'd greatly appreciate it.
I am currently looking for an agent who can help me promote my first novel, and give me direction with my second novel.

Interests: Dark thrillers with supernatural undertones. Or just plain supernatural. Favourite authors; John Connolly; Stephen King; Dean Koontz. I also appreciate Lee Childs; Michael Connelly; James Patterson; Cody McFadyen and Richard Montanari.
