I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but I never had any ideas. Not until I got so sick of sitting in front of my boss’s office that I started wondering what would happen if he got stabbed in there…
The result was a novel, IT Can Be Dangerous, now available on Amazon.
Musing over what my novel’s heroine, Cynthia Hegarty, did after she found her boss’s killer led to a short story, The Mystery of the Elusive Fitness Instructor. It’s available as an ebook, free at Smashwords. It was longlisted for the RTE Guide/Penguin Ireland short story competition in 2011. It’s a ten-minute read. Download it as a pdf from Smashwords and have a chuckle over a cup of tea.
Another story, Only Four Girls, was shortlisted for the RTE Francis MacManus short story prize in 2009 and was broadcast on Ireland’s national radio station, RTE1.
I live with my family at a very scenic location on the Ring of Kerry, Ireland.
