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. Unfortunately, I do not sign loose pages torn from notebooks, scraps of paper, hands, forearms or foreheads. However, if any pupils would like my autograph and they do not have a copy of one of my books, they can print out my Author Autograph Sheet and I will happily sign this for them.
