About the author:
Raymond McCullough, from Co. Down, near Belfast, Northern Ireland, has been a professional writer for over twenty years, originally writing a regular series - plus other articles, reviews and reports - for several UK computing magazines.
From 1990-96 he edited and published the Irish magazine, 'Bread' - releasing his first book, 'Ireland - now the good news!' from this in 1995; co-edited by his wife, well-known fiction author Gerry McCullough. His articles have also been published in the Irish Times, Dublin, and the Presbyterian Herald, Belfast.
In 1993 he hosted a radio show, 'In tha Name a' Gawd!' on 96.7 BCR, in Belfast, which later developed into his current satellite radio show of music, news and faith-based interviews - broadcasting around the world on several satellite networks.
Since then he's been involved in media of all kinds - from web design to podcasting, satellite and internet radio, plus documentary TV production - producing two albums of Celtic music, 'Into Jerusalem,' in 2005 and a Celtic pop-folk EP, 'Different,' in 2008.
In September 2008, Raymond began producing and hosting 'Celtic Roots Radio' - an iTunes podcast and web station (on Live365) - with around 7,000 downloads per show in more than 100 countries. He also produces and hosts the 'In tha Name a' Gawd!' series and 'Fresh Bread' - broadcasting each week on several satellite radio networks heard in most countries of the world.
Raymond is currently working on a TV documentary, filmed mainly in Canada, entitled, 'Broken Treaties.'
