Good Morning from Northern Ireland. I ask a favour of you all. My Irish fantasy novel, ‘The Kirkwood Scott Chronicles: Skelly’s Square,’ is nearing 100 five star reviews in both the USA and UK & Ireland. It would be great if I could get one, or both of them, to 100 in the near future.Continue reading “I Need Your Help, Fellow Bloggers”

The 12 Blogs Of Christmas #10
As this Christmas blogging series glides (limps) to an end I thought I’d be a little selfish when it came to today’s suggested topic – Christmas presents. I’ve always been somewhat awkward promoting my own work so one of my New Year resolutions has been to be a little braver when it comes to stickingContinue reading “The 12 Blogs Of Christmas #10”
Are You A Bookaholic?
Well, are you? It’s nothing to be ashamed of and I promise I won’t tell a soul. Just you, me and the WordPress community. It can be our little secret, okay? Books have been a great comfort to me in recent years, so much so that I started to write them myself. They teach me,Continue reading “Are You A Bookaholic?”

It’s always nice to have your work appreciated so I thought I’d share some reviews I’ve received in the last week for my two books, ‘The Kirkwood Scott Chronicles: Skelly’s Square,’ and it’s sequel, ‘A New Jerusalem.’ Thank you to everyone who continues to support my writing and I hopeContinue reading “Some Nice Things People Have Said About Me This Week”

Good Morning from Northern Ireland. It’s only SIX days until you can order this bad boy. I’m very excited as I feel this is the best book I’ve ever written and can’t wait for people to read it and share their thoughts with me.

Are You A Bookworm?
Fionnuala had enough the other week and bought a new bookcase to house my ever increasing book collection. This now sits proudly at the top of our stairs and means I no longer have an excuse for secreting books around the home to be tripped over and stood upon. Yes, I’m going to have toContinue reading “Are You A Bookworm?”
Kirkwood Reaches Kolorado
Ryan from Colorado received this little beauty in the post the other day. Those of you who’ve been living under a rock these past few weeks might not know I’ve written a book. Well….I’ve written a book. You can check it out by clicking on the link below. Thank you to all those who haveContinue reading “Kirkwood Reaches Kolorado”
What Should I Read Next?
It’s pay day tomorrow and, as I’m still slightly adrift of making my first million, it’s the most eagerly awaited day of the month. Even better, it’s the weekend. We are planning a family day out, weather conditions permitting, but before then I’m looking forward to purchasing a few more books on my Kindle Fire.Continue reading “What Should I Read Next?”
Can I Ask You A Question?
Whenever people ask me what my book is about, I hmmmm and haaaaah without really giving them an adequate answer. I used to describe it as ‘Harry Potter meets Trainspotting,’ until Fionnuala told me it’s nothing like Harry Potter….or Trainspotting for that matter. Sorry to disappoint all you Daniel Radcliffe and Ewan McGregor fans outContinue reading “Can I Ask You A Question?”
Stop The World….I’ve Lost My Kindle
If you asked me what three items I would take onto a desert island (go on, ask me) I’d probably plump for my glasses, a lifetime supply of Diet Coke (surely that counts as one item?!) and my beloved Kindle Fire. You see, I read….a lot. And the Kindle is my way of stashing hundredsContinue reading “Stop The World….I’ve Lost My Kindle”
Where Do You Find The Time To Read?
I’m currently reading ‘Dark Places’ by Gillian Flynn. It’s a fantastic read. Eerie, edgy and beautifully written. The twists and turns of the plot leave me none the wiser as to how the story will turn out. It ticks every box as far as I’m concerned, a real page turner. Well, it would be ifContinue reading “Where Do You Find The Time To Read?”
What Are You Reading This Month?
Pay Day used to be such an exciting time for us. We would go out carousing, buy shiny new things and generally spoil ourselves after a long, hard month at the coal face. Then kids arrived. Three, no less. Pay day is now watching direct debit after direct debit devastate our bank balance. Pay dayContinue reading “What Are You Reading This Month?”
