David Keane is a writer living and working in Dublin. He writes across several forms including prose, poetry, and scripts. At present he is working on his second novel, Attrition, which was inspired by the murder of two children in rural 1920s Ireland.
He has been published in poetry and short story collections and has read his work on national radio. His treatment for a contemporary Irish screenplay, Grand, secured him a place on a script development workshop run by Working Title Films.

With a background in psychotherapy David has facilitated therapeutic writing workshops and has run general creative writing courses.
