I was born and reared in Dublin, where I live with my husband in a quiet cul-de-sac close to the foothills of the scenic Dublin mountains. I have two daughters and a son, and I am fortunate to be surrounded by an encouraging and hugely supportive circle of family and friends.
I have always loved reading, and books have been a magical part of my life since I was first introduced to the wonders of the children’s section of Inchicore library at a tender age. I began writing around then and over the years my writing career has included school plays, short fiction and freelance journalism. There were a few of swings and roundabouts in the great carousel of life before I had time and space to achieve my dream of writing a novel and I was first published by the dedicated team at Hachette Books Ireland in 2009. I am now a full time novelist and I am represented by the inspirational Sheila Crowley, literary agent at Curtis Brown, London.
I write under a pen name. It helps to take me out of my comfort zone and into the emotional lives of my characters. My contemporary novels are all about people and their passions, hopes and fears, the fragility and intricacies of relationships and flawed connections, all wrapped up in storylines layered with twists and turns, and blended with intrigue, drama, and romance.
I feel really privileged when I see my novels on the shelves in bookstores and libraries, and it’s even better when I hear good things from readers who have enjoyed my books and escaped into another world for a few hours, because that’s what makes it all worthwhile.
