What sort of writer am I?
Take DH Lawrence's sensuality and sensitivity, mix in a big dollop of John Steinbeck's earthy humor and truth, spice with a dash of Joyce's inventiveness and bawdyness. Sprinkle in a spot of Becket's radical originality. Cook in a slow simmering cauldron over an Irish peat fire given extra heat by the Scots/Irish hard burning coal and dish up in a new bowl of non-conformist Belfast manufacture. That's me. These are big names to live up to but I try.
I live in beautiful and splendid isolation on the side of the Galtee mountain near Mitchelstown, Co. Cork Ireland. I'm a bit of a cultural orphan - but thanks to the beloved B, and a cat with issues called Bobby - I'm very happy in our eclectic art and book filled rural nest.
