When not writing for FTN or revelling in his passions of comic books, gaming, music, TV or film, Shane can be found living out his days on a mysterious Island just like the one in his beloved TV show, LOST (in reality, the north of Ireland!). Always eager to meet new people and talk about anything nerd he can be found on twitter (@pranksterk) or on facebook! Just don't tell him what he can't do.. it's his destiny ;)
