Meet Eoghan Egan
A native of Co. Roscommon, Ireland, Eoghan wrote his first story aged nine.
At college, he studied Computer Programming, works in Sales Management & Marketing, but his passion for reading and writing remains.
Eoghan’s work got shortlisted for the 2018 Bridport Short Story Prize, and Listowel’s 2019 Bryan McMahon Short Story Award Competition. His novel was a contender in literary agent David Headley’s opening chapter Pitch Competition, and during March 2019 and April 2021, Eoghan’s entries won Litopia’s prestigious Pop-Up Submissions.
A graduate of Maynooth University’s Creative Writing Curriculum, and Curtis Brown’s Edit & Pitch Your Novel Course, Eoghan divides his time between Roscommon, Dublin and Southern Italy.
The first in his trilogy of crime fiction novels, Hiding in Plain Sight was released in 2020. Book two, The Other Side of Fear was published in 2022. Book three is due for publication in January 2024.
When he’s not writing, Eoghan can be found at literary festivals or headbanging at heavy metal gigs.
