Welcome to my website

Thank you for dropping by. I'm an award-winning writer of books for children and young people, based in Ireland.

You’ll find plenty here about me, my books, and visits I make to schools, libraries or reading groups. You can follow me on Twitter, drop me an email, or contact me directly.

My last published book was Chalkline. Published in 2009, it won several national and regional awards. Schools and teachers can find teaching guides for Chalkline, and my other most popular book, When Stars Stop Spinning, on my page for Teachers.

When I visit schools or libraries, I am happy to sign books and answer questions. In general, I do not sign loose pages torn from notebooks or scraps of paper, because these can easily get lost or misplaced. Nor do I sign hands, forearms or foreheads. If you would like my autograph and you do not have a copy of one of my books, or something suitable for me to sign, you might like to print out my Author Autograph Sheet which I will happily sign for you.
