About David Halpin

David Halpin lives in Carlow, Ireland with his family and quite possibly a curse.

David has worked as a sound engineer and radio producer and it was this background which inspired him to write his first novel ‘The Music of Secrets' which speculated upon the idea that sonic interference from new modes of tele-communication might activate dormant evolutionary pathways.

David has recently completed two children's books, one of which has been commissioned for film.

This book tells a wonderfully innovative mysterious tale…its imaginative, fascinating and completely compelling…had me gripped the whole way through. Well worth a read!

So although I reckon that it could do with a bit of restructuring, and that all the characters are overly well spoken, then the story and the author's imagination carried me on, and I felt well rewarded at the end.

He deserves a ton of credit for his first novel, and to make it clear: I know Dave only through a fantasy football website so have no grudge to bear apart from the fact that he doesn't support Leeds.

Having said that, I'll leave you to make your own judgement.
