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!

On the air

There is a first time for everything and yesterday I did my first radio interview. I was invited by Jacinta Matthews, host of Creative Flow on Dundalk FM, to appear on the show and we were joined by Roisin and Elaine, two members of a local book club. (Click to listen.)

We discussed my book Marked Off and writing in general.  I must say that it was a memorable and very enjoyable experience. Thank you to all concerned.
