I’m a Leitrim lass who moved to Northern Ireland to study and was charmed into staying by a Belfast biker. We have settled ourselves into a small cabin near the lake shore and try to keep the noise down in our bee loud glade.
I write poetry, short stories and memoir to clear my head of shenanigans. I also have a couple of plays and a novella hiding in the wings.
I started this blog as an experiment in 2016. My dog had much more to say than I had. As a result the blog has been neglected because I realise that the creatures that keep me company are much more fun.
I used to be scared to release anything into the wild. A stint at the John Hewitt International Summer school in 2016 made me realise that being a writer was not something to be afraid of. It was there that I met some of the members of Women Aloud Northern Ireland and joined their ranks on my return.
These days, I throw finished work into the ether without a backwards glance. Thankfully, all my babies have been re-homed with good people that only want the best for them.
I am working on my first anthology of poetry.
