Media Kit & Blog Information
I write in rural Ireland. I specialise in history and a humourous slant thanks to years of reading Wodehouse, Dickens, Pratchett, Brookmyre (see my three serialised novels on Channillo, the reading platform). My fiction and non-fiction has been published internationally and locally in everything from the local paper to anthologies, online media, coffee tins, and glossy magazines. I mentor the Ireland North East region in NaNoWriMo. I’ve been blogging about the history of unusual words since 2009 and have published two books on the topic (“How To Get Your Name In The Dictionary”, “Words The Sea Gave Us”). When I’m not writing, I read compulsively (I’m a top 60 reviewer in Ireland on Goodreads), garden organically, crochet (find me on Ravelry), and hike. There aren’t many crafts I haven’t tried – my house is overflowing with creations.
