Irish writer Felicity Hayes-McCoy is the author of the "Finfarran" novels, set in a fictional county on Ireland's West Coast. Cathy Kelly, bestselling author of "Between Sisters" and "Secrets of a Happy Marriage", describes Felicity's Finfarran books as "a delicious feast", while Jenny Colgan, New York Times bestselling author of "The Cafe by the Sea", calls them "charming and heartwarming".

The Library at the Edge of The World, the first Finfarran novel, was published in June 2016: The Sunday Times called it "engaging, sparkling and joyous" and The Sunday Independent wrote "If you like reading a feelgood novel, take a journey to the edge of the world. An easy, pleasant summer read for fans of Maeve Binchy".

I deliberately left it open because I thought I might come back to it in a subsequent book in the series. Then Oliver became a member of Hanna's library book club in Summer At The Garden Café, where his idiosyncratic approach to books and reading offered new scope. So the dog book storyline got put on hold.

These things tend to re-emerge in their own time and place, however, so the search may continue!

Did you like him? He's one of those peripheral characters I get very fond of, so I've a suspicion that he'll return in a future Finfarran book. He hasn't appeared yet in book four, though, and I'm working on that now. But who knows - your reminding me of him might prompt something ...(less)

Years ago, when I was writing for tv drama series, I learned to carry a very small notebook indeed. This was back in the days before notebooks were digital, when writers still suffered from stationary-envy and every meeting began with covert glances at other people’s desirable A4 Filolfaxes. Actually, back in those days, large-format notebooks had much to do with power games. The subliminal mes... Read more of this blog post »

“This book tells my story. I’m writing it in Ireland, in a house on a hillside. The house sits low in the landscape between a holy well and the site of an Iron Age dwelling. It was built of stones ploughed out of the fields by men who knew how to raise them with their hands and to lock one stone to the next so each was firm. It’s a lone house on the foothills of the last mountain on the Dingle peninsula, the westernmost point in mainland Europe. At night the sky curves above it like a dark bowl, studded with stars.

From the moment I crossed the mountain, I fell in love with the place, which was more beautiful than any I’d ever seen. And with a way of looking at life that was deeper, richer, and wiser than any I’d known before.”
Felicity Hayes-McCoy, The House on an Irish Hillside

“Everything in life has its own time to happen. A time to plant, a time to grow, and a time to harvest. And if you take things steady you’ll bring your harvest home.”
