Shepherds: Awakening


Aisling Shepherd's life is permanently changed when she's thrust into a fantastical world that seems to parallel our own. One where the rules aren't quite the same and reality is what you make it. Hundreds and thousands of people live there - most of them blissfully unaware that they're already dead.

And being fed on.

Nevertheless, Aisling can see those dark parasites, and they can see her. She soon finds herself fleeing from a swarm of the creatures intent on draining her very existence. Can she survive long enough to master her powers?

And what to do with her father, a man that disappeared from her life and now suddenly appearing as her guardian? Can she come to terms with why he abandoned her all those years ago? Blood is speaking and she now has to see if she has what it takes to live up to her name.

If she accepts, it'll break her, and she'll have to sacrifice everything. But she's a Shepherd, and countless people are depending on her.

All she has to do is open a door...

Damian Connolly

Damian hails from the hills of Monaghan, Ireland, and currently lives in Bordeaux, France, where he spends most of his time telling people that it *is* crazy that there's an Irishman that doesn't drink, but he still doesn't like wine.

Growing up, he spent most of his spare time reading, which causes a wonderful dilemma with parents, where, on the one hand, you can never cram too many words into a noggin, while on the other, if you don't put that book down and eat your dinner, young man - I don't care if you don't like it - I'm gonna fire that book out the window (windy, if you're from Monaghan).

Enamoured by video games at an early age (FF7 being the kickstarter for how it was possible to tell a great story through a game), he went and studied Multimedia instead, Ireland not having a games course at the time. While his friends were faffing around Asia and Australia, generally having a great time, he worked in digital design for print and web in order to save up for a Masters in Game Programming in 'Ull, England.

This kicked off a career making games for: PC; consoles; R&D; web; Facebook; more web; Facebook and web; Facebook, web, and mobile; before finally mobile.

An avid developer, he'll tinker at any language that'll let him near it, and has way too many side-projects on the go at any one time. Curiosity has cost him more than one night's sleep.

In early 2016, he decided to make good on a dream that'd been kicking around his head since he first started writing short stories; becoming an author. His debut novel, Shepherds: Awakening, was the result of that. All things considered; not too shabby.

He loves hearing from people, and you can get in touch through his website at Like what he writes? Get in touch. Hate what he does? Definitely get in touch. No idea who he is? Find out, and get in touch. Marriage proposal? Already spoken for, but get in touch.
