After academic courses in Arts (Trinity College Dublin, degree in English and History. I didn’t enjoy it) and Information Technology (Dublin City University, which I enjoyed a great deal more), I graduated from a Masters in Writing in NUI Galway with first class honours in 2003. Since then, I have had short stories published nationwide in a variety of good quality magazines and publications.
White Feathers, my novel of passion, betrayal and war, was selected as one of the final ten in the Irish Writers Centre Novel Fair, 2013, and published in 2014 by Brandon Books. It won critical acclaim from most respectable outlets and was shortlisted for the UK Romantic Novel of the Year Award in 2015.

For mental health reasons, and because of the marked deterioration in quality and behaviour on that platform, I have ceased to have a Twitter account since August 2017. I maintain a Facebook author page here and a locked Instagram, both of which are relatively quiet and manageable.
I formerly lived by the sea near Dublin. I now live by the sea near Cork 🙂 where I go for walks and get involved in politics. I am represented, for her sins, by Svetlana Pironko at Author Rights Agency.
