One of the great regrets I have is from last summer when I was in Dingle. Muireann was playing in a conce... Read more of this blog post »

One year ago today, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

I’d felt a lump several months earlier and had gone to my doctor for no fewer than three breast exams, only to be told that the lump felt like normal fibro-cystic tissue to her. I felt safe. I shouldn't have.

When I got the call that they had... Read more of this blog post »

IN some things you just dread to ask why.


I have liberated the clog of 13 posts from the depths of the filter. I have not yet sorted them. I have no idea what could have triggered the problem, involving Hanneke, Teasel, and others—I find nothing particularly sinister in teacakes.

Sometimes a book stalls because the writer's done something that derailed it, or didn't do something to keep it going. I experience stall-effect in the middle of almost every book, so now I expect it (hope it won't appear, but am not panicky when it does.) Doesn't mean I've lost my talent, can't...

We all remember playground bullies. How did you deal with yours? Natural human instinct makes the weaker party tend to cower, to slink and avoid contact with local thugs, hoping they won't notice you. Indeed, that's the reaction bullying is intended to bring about, for nothing terrifies an abuser... Read more of this blog post »

When people ask me if I run or if I would like to go running, I usually answer one of two ways:

1. Sure, I’ll run…after him if he’s got a warrant.

2. I don’t need to practice running away…I plan to stand and fight.
