Simon Ashe-Browne
Simon Ashe-Browne is a writer and actor based in Dublin. He was Overall Winner of The Sean Dunne Young Writers Awards in 2003, and is a contributor to The Irish Catullus or One Gentleman of Verona, a trilingual volume of Catullian verse edited by Ronan Sheehan.

“Winning the Dundee International Book Prize and having my novel published by Cargo is a major game changer for me” said Simon. “It is the realisation of a dream I’ve had since I was eight years old and a validation of all those house spent scratching away at the page.”

Kids can be so cruel. One minute you’re the class clown and the next – you’re nobody. Jonathon a.k.a. ‘the Doc’ stopped being funny months ago. Think he’ll give up without a fight? That’s not how the Doc operates…

Instead of ducking gracefully out of the limelight, this clown is scrabbling for centre stage. Watch the Doc as he walks the tightrope between comedy and tragedy, tumbling into an increasingly dark world of pranks gone wrong, fueled on the dark circus of movies, pop culture and schoolboy bravado.

Is the Doc a born performer or a natural psychopath? You decide.
