Hello distinguished writers
My name is FC Maeila.
I was born in the Irish midlands and immigrated to New York in my early twenties. My professional career was in financial banking but my true passion has always been literacy and the arts. I juggled a career, family and the hustle and bustle of life and now, I am finally putting pen to paper (or in reality tapping fingers on alpha keys)...
Hence, my writing journey...
This project is a collection of creative non-fiction memory stories dedicated to the Irish mothers and fathers of the 70's and 80's. These poignant stories demonstrate the selflessness of our parents and the sacrifices they made for us.
As a final note, I am delighted to be part of this writing group and I hope my local dialect in this coffee-table collection dosen't annoy you too much.
I look forward to reading and sharing "our penned words"...

My Top 10
10. Moby Dick (initially persuaded to read it as a child, then became truly inspired)
9. A Woman of Substance (love BTB and a good rags to riches story)
8. MacBeth (crazy right! It was compulsory to read S. in High School, initially did not understand it, or want to understand it for that matter, but soon appreciated his work)
7. The Charwoman's Daughter (superb literature...)
6. Enid Blyton's books (my childhood favorite)
5. Sherlock Holmes (loved the books, disliked all the movies, ACD was a genius of his time)
4.True Expectations (when I need a quick pick-me-up)
3. Tara Road by Maeve Binchy (my girlie escapism and nostalgic trip back to my home land)
2. Pride and Prejudice (JA just captivates my mind & soul)
1. Wuthering Heights (no commentary necessary for this one)
