ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born in Belfast in 1962, KEITH REILLY left to travel the world at 18, exploring Europe, India and South East Asia and meeting his Dutch wife, Maryke, en route. Today they live in Dorset and have two grown up children.
Keith focused on his career and became managing director of an international electronics firm. However, his creative side could not be ignored. Over the years he has published a number of artworks of Belfast and other cities, but more recently has turned to words for creative expression, from which emerged his debut novel, Ahoy for Joy.
The cover illustration for Ahoy for Joy is from an oil painting entitled Belfast Shipyard from Pearls house by Keith Reilly.
