David Noone grew up in a small rural village in Co. Kildare, Ireland. At 14 he was first admitted for what would become a continuous series of psychiatric hospital admissions to receive treatment for Recurrent Depressive Disorder. Despite this, he began his professional writing as a music journalist for the regional arts revue Stage Left. Noone, having little access to formal education within the confines of the hospital, immersed himself in the works of Poe, Camus, Baudelaire, and Rimbaud whilst listening to the music of The Virgin Prunes, Throbbing Gristle, and The Birthday Party. At 18 he moved to Dublin and worked in and around the arts world. Over the course of this period he had several poems published in literary journals and acted as lead singer and songwriter for his bands Poppy and David Noone and The Night Porters as well as touring Britain and Ireland with his solo show David Noone sings Nick Cave. He lives and writes in Dublin, and his first novella is the gothic ""Saint of the City"".
