Thank you for dropping by. I'm an award-winning writer of books for children and young people, based in Ireland.
In January 2015, I was the first international honour recipient of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) Jane Yolen Mid-List Author Award 2014. I am hugely grateful to Jane Yolen for her generosity in supporting mid-list writers and honoured to have received this award from SCBWI.
If I visit your school or library, I am always happy to sign books and answer questions. However, I don’t 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 don’t 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.
