I want to take this time to tell my readers a bit about myself.
Born and reared in Wexford Ireland, I moved to Washington some years ago for my career and to follow my heart; my husband. The one person who keeps me grounded and keeps me sane. From my photos above you will see that family and friends are everything to me, we enjoy traveling and meeting new people, making lasting impressions and memories.
The reason behind my writing? Where do I start? In 2007 I was diagnosed with MS and during the 7 weeks I spent in hospital when first diagnosed, I began to write my first ever book, Daughter of Arella. An Adult Celtic Fantasy. It kept me from imaging my life being over, but has also made me realize having MS has changed my life for the better in so many ways. Following Daughter of Arella, I continued to write the next book in the trilogy called Light in the Dark. In the mean time I had finished that book and began Lord of Zantar last year, until for the first time I was faced with writers block. I was exhausted and my brain refused to get with the program, so I decided to take a break from my beloved characters, and focus on something new. Eternally Spring was published on the 1st of September 2013. Non-Fiction and based on the true story of a young man from TN following and surviving a car crash at 17, and who now suffers from P.T.S.D, night terrors, medication for anxiety, following 15 years of not dealing with that night. I am focusing this book on the teenagers of today who are only branching out into the world of driving. Having written plays for stage, (one being The Brotherhood of the Celts), I have found novels are so very different, but nothing can describe the feeling you get when you hold that book in your hands and smell it. Like a child at Christmas :) Last year I wrote my first Fanasty Death Calls which I have retired for good for rewrite. The want to try this genre for YA/Teenagers led me to this decision.
I made the decision to move across the pond to America, my adopted home :) It was the best thing I have ever done in my life, and I have made an amazing life for myself, with the help of my wonderful husband and step-son, who are my world, and in the process met some wonderful people. I have subconsciously made the decision to write until my mind decides it has nothing more for me, and only then will rest my fingers. I love that people enjoy my stories and I hope not to disappoint.
