Darragh grew up in Dublin, where he often daydreamed about the DART train going somewhere more magical than Howth Junction. He was given a Fulbright Scholarship to develop his writing in 2006 and has been living in New York City since, where he teaches literature at Columbia University, writes plays and admires trees. Darragh is represented by the Lisa Richards Agency and has a website at www.darraghmartin.com. The Keeper (new edition coming in 2015) is his first children\'s book. Watch out for the next book for younger kids coming soon from this great children\'s book writer.
