James Doyle was born in inner city Belfast at the height of the notorious 'Troubles,' a period which shaped and greatly impacted him and his entire family. From an early age he dodged the bullets and bombs of the city by immersing himself in books about far-flung, exotic places. He is a full-time teacher of Geography at Our Lady & St. Patrick's College in Belfast.
