About the Author
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. 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, thanks, but get in touch.

A bored billionaire chooses to pay a fortune for the privilege of hunting dinosaurs. What he doesn’t know (or does he?) is that there is more going on with this situation than a fair man-against-dinosaur hunt.
Connolly describes his main character, James Byron, thoroughly and maintains suspense throughout the story. The setting was believable and the story never slowed down. I read it easily in one sitting, wondering all the way whether James would survive.
Unfortunately, at the end of the story, I was still wondering. I felt strongly that the story was not finished and I was disappointed by the abrupt ending!
That all being said -- I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who likes a little dinosaur in their hunting.
The billionaire, out for one last thrill, takes on more than he can chew when the gambling syndicates start flooding the dark web with wagers. Clever twists but over too soon.

The characters are very well described, the suspense neatly built up, the ending surprising. A great story from a great writer. I will definitely read more from Damian Conolly.
"The Billionaire's Graveyard" whisk's you away from a lofty Manhattan city boardroom, to a humid jungle on one of the worlds most secure islands shrouded in secrecy.
The story follows the exploits of intrepid big game hunter and billionaire James Byron,as he sets out into the unknown on of his latest grand adventures with his trusted hunting companion Harry.
The story was well paced, full of excitement and adventure. The hunter becomes the hunted and a deadly game of and mouse ensues between man and creatures that have been extinct for millions of years. The nature of a short story sadly means the tale is over all too soon and the reader is left clamoring for more. I do hope that Mr Connolly will grant us the pleasure of another foray into this wonderful world he has crafted with "The Billionaire's Graveyard".
