NORA was the most borrowed adult fiction book from Dublin City Libraries in 2022! Huge thanks to all who borrowed, and espesh to Jackie Lynam & Anne Marie Kelly of One Dublin One Book, all at Dublin City Library and the stellar team at New Island Books. This is all such a thrill for a normally under-the-radar writer like myself ❤️ It was a hectic two years with NORA, all very much appreciated but also exhausting so I am re-setting at the moment, editing the next one, ruminating on the one after that, and playing catch-up with my real life kids, family, cats, and home.


My husband Finbar and I have set up a Little Free Library in the garden opposite our house in Ballinasloe (just in front of my writing cabin), so that during these lockdown days, friends and neighbours can have new books to read.

If you visit, please observe correct social distancing and use the hand sanitiser provided. Also help yourself to a free bookmark, made by my 10 yo daughter Juno and me.

If you can swap a book, please do, but there’s no requirement to do that. We have a lot of books and we’re happy to give them away.
