Interesting Interview

I was recently invited by Irish Interest to do an interview for their website. It took place near Seapoint and, thankfully, the weather was on its best behaviour!

Marked Off – a year since the launch

It’s hard to believe but a year has passed since my book Marked Off was launched. It was a wonderful night in Hanna’s Book Shop in Rathmines and, thankfully, there have many good reviews in newspapers and literary websites since. And a few appearances on television and radio shows were really great fun. Anyway, thanks one and all for your support and encouragement, and here’s to an even better new year!

This is fun!

Radio interview and short story reading

I was invited onto the Creative Flow literary show on Dundalk FM that is presented by Jacinta Matthews. We discussed my short story Let’s Dance which I read; finding inspiration and what I was currently working on.

Marked Off – Finds a perfect home

DLR Lexicon

DLR Lexicon

Recently, I had the great pleasure of presenting my book Marked Off to the new DLR Lexicon library. And, as most of the story takes place within Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown (DLR) it is appropriate that it should ‘find a home’ in the library. Many thanks to DLR Libraries and Nigel Curtin for the opportunity – it is really appreciated.
