about me

I was born in Dublin, Ireland, and have lived there ever since. I am married with two grown-up children.
I left my staff job as a sub-editor on the Irish Times business desk in 2002 to work as a freelance journalist. Since then I have written Love Knot and I am working on my next novel.
I also run an underground restaurant in my home. I am a member of Rathfarnham Theatre Group, for whom I have written, produced and directed a one-act play, Angel Superhighway.
Love Knot is my first novel and I am working on the next one.

Great start to this gritty thriller and the heroine is very well drawn. Feel a bit sorry for her poor husband. Will definitely come back to this one. Backed! view book

Just read the prologue and first two chapter. You write really well with great pace and characterisation. The tension to the bonfire is built up nicely and the children's relationships are really well drawn. Congrats! view book
