I was born in Dublin, Ireland, in the late nineteen-fifties. I emigrated to London in my twenties and worked there until the end of the twentieth century. Which sounds epic-like, but it was actually a matter of fifteen years or so. By that time, I had had it with cities and when I returned to Ireland with my partner, we found a lovely little home in County Mayo, in the rural west of the country.
When I say little, I mean it. Four rooms in total and that's counting the kitchenette and the bathroom! On the bright side, I can vacuum the entire house without having to change the socket.
Outside is a different story. We have two and a half acres of land. Granted it is extremely rocky, but the grass grows well and we have a large polytunnel where I grow vegetable and plants for sale.
Politically, I am a feminist, which for me means I want to see a world where people come before profit and where all human interaction is underpinned with respect for and appreciation of others. I believe that everybody is good a something and that when we all cooperate, we can be sublime. In recent years I have been involved in the fight for marriage equality in Ireland. Which we won.
When in London, I completed a couple of degrees which focused on Women's Studies, History and Philosophy. I remain very interested in those subjects but my main focus now is writing. I have written one book and co-authored two others. Currently, I am working on a sequel to The Jam Maker in addition to finishing my third collaboration.
