It’s All Noah’s Fault – GUEST – Seumas Gallacher #TBSU

There are few more impressive sights in the world than a Scotsman on the make.” James M. Barrie

Seumas Gallacher is an author who blogs in a distinctive style. He has written two thrillers, with a third on the way.
A warm and humourous man, Seumas is proud of his Glasgow roots. Not many people know he is a Scots Gaelic speaker; so good indeed that he has a number of Am Mòd Nàiseanta Rìoghail or MOD medals to his name.
Although he lives in the UAE, his writing is exciting, with topical, explosive thrillers set in exotic locations
