Hello and Welcome!
I'm delighted you have taken a moment to visit my site. Today, 3rd December, 2016, I have had a really great day accompanying Patricia Ingle and her family on their visits to libraries and bookshops promoting I Am Free in the City and County of Cork.
An emotional audience listened to a brief account of Patricia’s story in Cork City’s Library on the Grand Parade. And after savouring some of the Christmas atmosphere in the city, the Ingles came to West Cork to visit Bandon Books Plus and Riverview Shopping Centre.
Since the launch of I Am Free in O’Mahony’s Bookstore, Limerick, I Am Free has been distributed to the majority of bookshops around Ireland, with the help of Argosy Books Wholesalers and Easons Warehouse covering Ireland’s stores and Kenny's Bookshop, Galway, offering free postage to anywhere in the world!
And now I’ve had a holiday and a chance to breathe after completing such a mammoth project, I’m starting to flex the writing muscle again and think about a new project for 2017.
I bought a new ‘ideas’ book today called Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. I'm going to sit back and read my way through the rest of 2016 with numerous books of all types piled high on my ‘to be read’ pile!
I’ve had a few interesting opportunities recently interviewing other writers and it always fascinates me that despite differences in writing routine, a great similarity lies at the heart of all writers - the love of patching words, sentences and paragraphs together as we flesh out a simple idea in the hopes that it will breathe a life between the pages and entertain readers in the future.
My books are still being read in all formats and Where There’s A Will is also available in Audio version.
....and for those of you who are writers, keep writing! And readers everywhere - sincere thanks because without readers....ah well, that’ll never happen. I couldn’t imagine a life without reading.
