About: Gary McElkerney was born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where he gained a BA Hons. in Furniture, Product and Interior Design at the University of Ulster, before pursuing a career in Lighting Design. Gary considers himself a storyteller more than an author and his experiences volunteering for first aid work in Nicaragua, Hungary and Ethiopia gave life to Volunteer.
Gary continues to live, and work as a Lead Lighting Designer, in Belfast. His hobbies include playing American Football for the Carrickfergus Knights, and taking part in endurance races around the UK and Ireland, raising funds for charity.
Volunteer’s publication is the first phase of a wider project, The Ultimate Creative Challenge; to write a novel and get it published, to develop a script and produce a film or TV drama and record songs for a soundtrack album.
