I am a (mature) student of English, and Irish History at Maynooth University, as well as an author of fiction and non-fiction, and a blogger.
I am fascinated by Ireland’s magical ancient heritage, and my writing is inspired by that, and also by my twelve year old daughter, Carys, who was born with Cardiofaciocutaneous Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder.
Please forgive me if I go off the main topic every now and again, and blog about my life with Carys… sometimes, it can get overwhelming, and writing about my experiences helps.
My life is hectic and eclectic; full time study, looking after my busy sporty young family and all that entails, as well as my crazy mutt-hound, Indi(ana Bones), lots of driving, and trying to keep my blog updated whilst I work on my books… life is never dull!
In the midst of all that, I try to get out into the countryside as much as possible, which is essential not only for my sanity, but also to bring you photos, videos, and tall tales of the characters and mythologies which are entwined as much with Ireland’s psyche, as its landscape.
