The Mad Carpenter is the home of the collected writing and thoughts of David McGirr.

I graduated from the University of Ulster in 2008 with a degree in Media Studies with a minor in Film Studies. I’ve been a business ghostwriter in the field of marketing and social media, and currently I work in the sales department of a hosting company.

I’ve also been writing fiction for many years, mostly in an amateur capacity. Each year I participate in Nanowrimo, a yearly challenge to write 50,000 words in one month. Since publishing chapters from one year’s project, titled WTF America, I’ve decided to publish my attempts to this site during each year I participate.

I prefer to write fiction focused on dieselpunk dystopia, but I am currently working on horror short stories. WTF America, is a sort of biography which focuses on the experience of a recent immigrant to America..
