Started life performing in London orchestras all over the world, and was published by 'top five' publisher Orion/Hachette, to great reviews. After having family, made money ghosting books for celebs and others. Still playing cello and ghostwriting, but now trying to relaunch traditionally published novelist career (new genre - sci-fi - new publisher - UK publisher Unbound.

"A post-apocalyptic speculative novel about a fiery and indigenous Aussie rebel living in 23rd- century Earth, battling the Xirfell rulers – along with his own internal demons. 1984 crossed with Catcher in the Rye."

Reviews of McVeigh’s previous novels:

The Sunday Times:

'Characters rise and fall to McVeigh’s superbly controlled conductor's baton. The orchestra becomes a universe in microcosm; all human life is here . . . McVeigh succeeds in harmonising a supremely comic tone with much darker notes.'

The Sunday Telegraph:

'McVeigh is a professional cellist and is thus able to describe with wry authority the extraordinary life of a London orchestra. This is a very enjoyable novel, and not quite as light as it pretends to be.'
