Herbie proves that following your heart can pay dividends
Talk about being a prophet without honour in your own country. Hands up how many people have heard of bestselling Co Down-born author Herbie Brennan.
The man who writes under the name JH Brennan and now lives in Co Carlow probably couldn't care less that he is not particularly well known in his native land. He can always point to the 10 million books he has sold in more than 50 countries.
That, it has to be said, is a further reach than he ever achieved as a one-time Belfast Telegraph journalist. Even then, he wanted to be an author. His success proves that following your dreams can pay off - and very substantially.
