A native of County Kildare, Liam Nevin lives in Shepperton, England with his wife Marlene, where he is now retired having worked for forty-one years at Heathrow Airport. He has two children and three grandchildren.
He writes on Irish and local history, in both fictional and non-fictional styles.
His first book, The Tobacco Fields of Meath (2010), came about as a result of research into his family history and the discovery of a wealth of information on tobacco growing left by his grandfather, John Nevin, in Randlestown, Navan, County Meath. John Nevin worked on growing tobacco on the estate owned by Sir Nugent Everard Bart for over thirty years. The Everard family put a lot of effort and money into the industry. Subsequent to the publication, he made contact with Sir Harry Everard, the great grandson of Sir Nugent.
Brightening Over Dillon’s (2016) combines the experiences of family and friends whom he grew up with in a small village in Ireland of the 1960s. “I have tried to paint a picture of that time … It is not intended as a wholly historical account of the period, or of any particular family of that time but I tried to include many actual events in Ireland, as they occurred.”
The Dawning of the Day (2021), his third book, is a historical novel that came about as a result of a story often related to him by his mother, of a soldier who was fatally wounded in a field that they would pass on Sunday walks.
