Dear Readers, Welcome! Thank you for visiting my Amazon Page. I live in West London with my daughter and my dog, Mr Wilks. I was brought up in London as part of a large family from Mayo and started writing in the cupboard under the stairs. Being a shy child among great storytellers it seemed like a good plan to share my stories by writing them down. I haven't stopped since. I’m currently Writer in Residence at Richmond and Hillcroft Adult Community College where I returned to education as an adult learner. My latest book is a the Victorian detective mystery Things in Jars (Canongate, U.K. out now. Atria, U.S. out Feb 2020). I’m delighted to tell you that my VERY FIRST CHILDREN’S book called EVERYDAY MAGIC is out in June 2020 (Canongate). I'm now hard at work developing original TV projects – watch this space! I love hearing from my readers so do get in touch!
