Hello and welcome, it’s good to meet you!
If you’re not here by mistake, you’ll know I’m a writer; a born storyteller with roots tracing back into the mists of time and the myths and legends of Celtic Ireland. And someone who has been imagining characters and their stories since early childhood.
As soon as I could pick up a pen I started to write, so it was no surprise I became a journalist, diving headfirst into my career after studying at the Dublin College of Journalism.
From here I moved into PR & Corporate Communications, spending many happy years in that challenging, commercial world, whilst continuing to write creatively (at ungodly hours) throughout.
These days I’m delighted to say I’m recognised as an author and poet having published three highly acclaimed novels and an award-winning collection of short stories and poetry.
I’m lucky enough to live in rural Leicestershire in the UK with my husband Jonathan, two cocker spaniels, Watson and Wignell and a rescue cat called Agatha Christie – so named, because we never know who she’s going to kill next!
We all love to escape to the sea or the mountains when we can and having secured a Power Boat Licence some years ago, I freely admit I still harbour the burning ambition to be a Bond girl! (Well, if it’s good enough for Dame Judy!)
I am currently working on my next novel … so watch this space!

I would never have been published without these wonderful women!
