Event!

Posted by on Mar 1st, 2016 in Blog | Comments Off

Hello, my latest novel, Dublin’s Fair City, published by Tirgearr Publishing on 5th February is my fifth novel and I’m writing my 6th. I have been very busy writing and promoting my work, one of the reasons I’ve not been blogging lately. Sadly, a New Year’s resolution I wasn’t able to keep. But, I hope to put up some interesting content soon. I’m attending an event in Hackney London this month where I will be talking about my books and listening to some great Irish music for St Patrick’s day. If you...

Dublin Book launch!

Posted by on Sep 17th, 2015 in Blog, Event | Comments Off

Just returned from a wonderful book launch at Blanchardstown library in Dublin. Thanks to the friendly warm people who attend and bought my books. Thanks also to my lovely family who came along to support me on the day.  We had a fun time and the two babies who attended with their mum, my niece, were as good as gold. I was launching my latest book  ”Where the Shamrocks Grow” and it sold really well. The hotel we stayed at was only ten minutes away from the library which was very handy.  The problem was that my family live on the...

RNA conference weekend.

Posted by on Jul 18th, 2015 in Blog | Comments Off

Members enjoyed a wonderful annual RNA conference weekend on 10-12 July. It took place at the Queen Mary University London. There is no way to describe a group of 25o romantic authors getting together for a long awaited chat about the weird and wonderful happenings over the course of the year. You have to experience it to know what it’s like. Inspiring talks on all aspects of writing a novel.  And no matter how many books authors have published, there is always something new to learn. This was one of the best I’ve been too and I...

RNA Chapter

Posted by on Feb 7th, 2015 in Blog | Comments Off

Eighteen  romantic novelists’ turned up for our monthly chapter at the Belmont Hotel in Leicester on 6th Feb 2015. It was a very noisey chatterly lunch with an update on everyone’s recent news and publications with a cake to celebrate. It’s surprising how enlightening these gatherings can be. It’s also a nice break from working at the computer for hours on end without another author to talk and discuss things with. Yes, we have Facebook and all the other networking sites, but nothing compares to a face to face chat....

After a wonderful 2014 I’m keeping my fingers crossed for 2015.  So far it’s been amazing. Two new books are due out in print this year and also audio and large print. That is all good news for me. I hope  readers’ who have enjoyed Shadow Across the Liffey and Her Father’s Daughter in print will also enjoy Galway Girl and Where the Shamrocks Grow. My publishers, Tirgearr had a book sale from Christmas Day through to end of January and this has boosted sales of all four books. Unfortunately for readers’ they are...

Hello!

Sorry I’ve been locked out of my blog for a while. Just heard that some of my family will be visiting soon from New Zealand.  Really looking forward to that and seeing my newest grandson, Forrest James, for the first time.  Seeing them on Skype is brilliant, but to be able to give them a hug will be much nicer. To add to that, all four of my books have been taken up for library large print and audio in 2015 Where the Shamrocks Grow has recently been released as an ebook from www.tirgearrpublishing.com and the Amazon uk and us sites.
