 Finn Dervan

Finn lives in York where he teaches, writes and desperately tries to avoid growing up. He is an historian, an execrable poet and a hopeless romantic. He is also a little bit obsessed with Robert Smith and craft ale. He sees none of these things as character flaws.

Serenity Song is his first novel: Inspired by the chance discovery of a family secret that had remained hidden for a generation, Finn rather rashly travelled to Ireland where he began to piece together a story best forgotten. However, in doing so, he couldn't help but wonder at what could have been - what should have been.


Serenity Song is the fiction born of rigorous historical research, an over active imagination and too much red wine.
