WELCOME TO DRIVEN TO WRITE
Eóin Doyle is a writer living a bi-polar existence between the UK and Ireland. Co-founder and Editor, with responsibility for the day-to-day running of the site, Eóin remains, amid his other weaknesses, a lifelong automotive enthusiast. Driven to Write’s resident Jaguariste, he currently smokes about in an twenty three year old Saab of dubious provenance, but only in lieu of that elusive XJ40 he keeps harping on about.
Richard Herriott lives in Denmark but not Copenhagen. He is a researcher and teacher in industrial design. His present car is a 1990 Citroën XM. For nearly a decade a Peugeot 604 has been his dream alternative but each year the budget for buying such a car is spent instead on machine-made cigars of indifferent quality.
Daniel O’Callaghan is Irish but spent his working life in the UK and has now retired to rural East Anglia. Daniel comes from neither an automotive nor journalistic background, but has had a lifelong fascination with cars, particularly in terms of design and brand management. He drives a Mini Cooper and, when the sun is shining, a Porsche Boxster.
Simon A. Kearne is truly an icon in the world of transport publication. From the start of his career at 16 years of age as Goods Rolling Stock Reviewer for Modeller’s Monthly, he moved seamlessly through the industry, including a spell at Jane’s Armoured Fighting Vehicles and a memorable period as assistant to legendary motoring journalist, Archie Vicar. Following his unexpected retirement as Editor of Duple Coach Magazine, the DTW founders were fortunate to secure his services. Our Consultant Editor, combining the iron will and relentless self-confidence of a cerise Rolls Phantom accelerating down a Moscow VIP lane with the predictability of a Chevrolet Corvair on a wet roundabout, Simon is both our touchstone and our forewarning.
