Making Fiction Work with Fergal Joe

What was the last thing you’ve imagined? Does the daily hustle and bustle of life suck away your creative juice? Will you ever give yourself what you’re due with? For author Fergal Joe, knowing what he ought to give himself gives him strength in defining what he wants and what he is willing to do to realize his ambitions.

Fergal Joe is the author of The Golden Eagle and the Fiddle of Doom series, with the first book being The Golden Eagle and the Fiddle of Doom: The Rising of Souls. Despite the magical world, the characters in the book reside in, the human emotions and relations showcased throughout the book anchors on real-world experiences. Universal and well-loved themes of love, family, friendship, ambition, adventure, and vengeance, plus so more, create an enthralling read for readers of any age. Readers who love the adventurous and magical literature genre will have to prepare themselves for a stirring read. Admittedly a contemporary of J.R.R. Tolkien and J.K. Rowling, Fergal Joe reels in readers to a world filled with adventure and mystery.

Despite his battle with dyslexia, Fergal Joe is determined to make his outside world as adventurous as the world he has in his head. An alumnus of Fermanagh College in Northern Ireland, the author, continues to branch out his skills. He took and passed courses and training in city and guilds, agriculture, computer, and picture framing. His curiosity serves him well, not just with conjuring stories but also with technical, real-world skills. Who knows if one of these courses will become his source material for his next big project, right?

Fergal Joe is a man who continues to take pleasure in learning. His literary work takes as much of his hard work and dedication as with his technical crafts. His motivation in balancing his creative self and his technical self is an inspiration for all the authors. The writer’s life is not always glamorous. You may not always take the pen. You may pick up the hammer first before taking the pen. But whichever path you end up taking, look up and watch out for a golden eagle as you listen to a melancholic fiddle playing.

You can always make your fiction work.
