Colin McMahon (full name: Colin Patrick McMahon): As you may have guessed, I have more than a touch of Irish ancestry in my background.
I’ll keep this brief, as I’d much rather my personality be revealed in my writings and actions.
I was born in the 1980s – technically. In reality, being born in August of 1989 gave me only four months to enjoy the decade. Most of that time was occupied by cake and its many uses (sculpting material, natural paint substance, face makeup – you’d be surprised at the number of applications).
Moving right along, I grew up in Abington, Massachusetts. My friends and I always referred to it as the giant used car lot roughly halfway between Boston and the Cape – but that’s a disservice. Abington, while it loves to sell secondhand cars, also has its natural beauties in Island Grove and Ames Nowell State Park. It also has at least four Dunkin Donuts… so it has that going for it…. which is nice.
After Abington, I spent five life-changing years attending Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. For those of you out there interested in Creative Writing – put Concordia on the list. It’s a good school, and living in Montreal is an incredible experience.
Fast-forward to today, and I’m back in Massachusetts. I’m currently a corporate editor by (work) day and an author/dreamer at nearly every other second. I love writing – I have done it since I was seven years old. I hope to do it for the rest of my life.
So far, I have been blessed with a plethora of ideas to keep me busy for at least the next ten years. Here’s hoping the creativity never drys up – and here’s also hoping that you like what I create.
A writer is an interesting creature, in my opinion. Part artist, part entertainer – I’m going to do the best I can to be both. Hopefully, I’ll write something that you enjoy, as well as something that moves you on a deeper level.
Be sure to let me know how I’m doing. Thanks for coming by my site!
For any who are curious, my three loftiest dreams (regarding my writing) are as follows:
- To have one of my books turned into a major motion picture or television series.
- To be interviewed on the Daily Show.
- To become famous enough to be impersonated on Epic Rap Battles of History.
Those are good goals, right?
