Keith Martin


I am the author of the The Little Book of Sham.

I've enjoyed writing residencies at both the Tyrone Guthrie Centre and the Heinrich Boll Cottage on Achill island.

I have worked as a fast food cook, a barman, a shop assistant, a labourer, a doorman and even managed a distribution centre for women's underwear.

More recently I was Deputy Mayor of the Town of Westport 2009-2010.

I hold a BA (Hons) in Media Management and Production and a Higher Diploma in Print Journalism.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Thinking about why I am not writing and then feeling guilty about it
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I am an avid reader and online shopper. Especially when money is scarce. I scan the best sellers and look for books like the ones I read or would like to have written myself!

'The Little Book of Sham' is the result of hours spent staring into space, wondering - not just, 'Why are we here?' - but also - "How?" and 'Have I left the oven on?' More urgent than "The Power of Now", funnier than "The Tibetan Book of the Dead" and packed with more secrets than "The Secret". Read it and weep-tears of laughter.
