BRENDAN O’CONNOR SHOW & SUNDAY TIMES – SEABORNE

The link to my interview with Brendan O’Connor on RTÉ Radio 1 is HERE. We talked autism, sobriety, anxiety meds, secrets, Anne Bonny, and more. He was very nice and friendly and I enjoyed the chat.

More chat from me in the Sunday Times yesterday – this time an essay I wrote about autism, tiny fictions, stims and more. See below.

GALWAY BOOK LAUNCH & ARENA INTERVIEW

We launched Seaborne in style at the Druid Mick Lally Theatre in Galway on Tuesday. Huge thanks to launcher Edel Coffey, my gorgeous editor Aoife K. Walsh, Marketing & Publicity Manager at New Island Des Doyle, all who came out to set sail with Anne, and to Manuela Moser and all the Cúirt team.

And I was on RTÉ Radio’s ARENA last night with lovely Seán Rocks. You can listen back here.
