I’m an Irish author who’s been writing novels and plays for nearly thirty years. My first novel, Beatrice was published in August 2004 which was a bestseller in Ireland. This was followed by A Small Part Of me in 2005, I Remember in 2008, The Adulteress in 2010, The Secret Loves of Julia in 2012, The Gravity of Love in 2018, and The Island Girls in 2020.
My books have been published in over 12 different countries.
I’m also published under the pen name Evie Blake and my Valentina Trilogy hit the Der Spiegel Bestseller List in 2013.
In 2014 I was one of 56 Irish Writers included in the anthology and exhibition Lines of Vision Irish Writers on Art at the National Gallery of Ireland, and published by Thames & Hudson.
I’ve also written five plays – Northern Landscapes, Black Virgin, Runaway Wife, The Good Sister, and Witches’ Gets, which featured in Cymera and Audacious Women Festivals in Edinburgh in 2019 & 2020 to sell out houses.
I currently live in Edinburgh in Scotland, and I am one of the founders of Aurora Writers’ Retreats , and part of the wellness hub The Space To BE. I offer a critiquing service for budding writers through Inkwell Writers.
My stories are written from the heart, historical with contemporary resonance and relevance, with family mysteries and secrets. If you like reading love stories set against evocative landscapes from all over the world, you might like to pick up one of my books. My purpose is to tell women’s stories from the past and present and to give voice to those who are rarely heard.
MY LATEST NOVEL IS : THE ISLAND GIRLS
