I’m an actor and director at a small theatre a few miles from where I live in the county of Yorkshire in the UK. I did work as a project and business change manager – very pressured and very demanding – but I managed to escape and now I write books.

I’ve always loved stories and story telling so it seemed a natural progression, to me, to try my hand at writing and I started with short stories. My first published story was in an anthology, which was put together by the magazine ‘Ireland’s Own’ in 2011.

I particularly enjoy the challenge of plotting and planning different genres of work. My short stories vary between contemporary romance, memoir, mystery and historical. I also write comic flash-fiction and have drafted two one-act plays that h

Narnia would be good but I'm afraid I would want to be the White Witch so that i could wear those gorgeous clothes that Tilda Swinton wore in the film! And yes I know, that's very shallow! The only other place I would want to go would be Hundred Acre Wood. As a child, I loved the stories of Winnie the Pooh and Eeyore and playing Pooh-sticks. If I was there I would totally embrace my inner child and have nothing but fun! (less)

Hi there, nice to e-meet you and thanks for getting in touch.

As for Yorkshire - I could not agree more. It's a beautiful county, especially the moors and the northern coastal area. I wouldn't say I was a rebel but I always question injustice. Am I exhausting? Hmm, interesting question! I suppose my answer is - also straight from the hip - I sincerely hope not, but I know I can be testing, especially when things are not going as I had planned or hoped.

As for travelling being exhausting, in some respects I agree with you. But mostly, I find travelling an everlasting adventure. It's such a great opportunity to meet new people, to see different 'worlds' and to value new experiences no matter how insignificant they may appear. I have no plans to stop travelling in France, or anywhere else for that matter. (less)

... by Elizabeth Bowen


First published in 1935, this book is considered to be her best novel.  I have to disagree with that.  Along with her novels Bowen was a great short story writer and some of her anthologies are fascinating reads.  I particularly like her ghost stories, which can rival the best that M R James and his ilk can offer.Born in Dublin in 1899, she spent a happy childhood in Ire...

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The setting was theatrical one - what's not to like about that? The story is from the romantic suspense genre and is told with easily flowing prose and a subtle wit. It's an easy but very compelling read.
