I was born and brought up in Dublin, with my two brothers and two sisters. I had a very happy childhood until I was 5, when I was sent to school. I spent the next thirteen years waiting to leave. After school I went to university to study French and Spanish, but I dropped out after a year.

In my early twenties I moved to London to seek my fortune. I didn't find it, but I had a lot of fun while I was looking. That was in the eighties. After several years I returned to Dublin, which is now home. I'm happily single and live in the heart of the city with a strong supporting cast of imaginary characters.

Just write as much as you can, make the time to write and find your own voice. Write the kind of book you would love to read.

I would also advise writers to connect with other writers, whether in real life or on the internet. Being part of a community of writers can be incredibly supportive and encouraging.(less)

This seemed like the perfect cake for Romy to make for her Halloween party at the start of Frisky Business. It's really a pudding cake and is good served hot or cold. It's a recipe from Edward Hayden that I got in a magazine. It's handy because the butterscotch sauce and apple sauce can be made in advance, and then the cake can be assembled later.

“Very good,’ May smiled. ‘Likewise, if my sub has pleased me, I will let him know. I’ll praise him, tell him he’s a good boy, perhaps pet him a little.’ She reached out and stroked Romy’s hair from the top of her head to her shoulders. ‘So it’s a bit like owning a dog?’ Lesley piped up, and Romy couldn’t suppress a giggle. May sighed. ‘No, Lesley,’ she said, rolling her eyes in exasperation. ‘It’s nothing like owning a dog.’ ‘Well, you give the sub collars and you train them, and they get treats for being obedient. And you give him a pat on the head and tell him he’s a good boy. Sounds like a dog to me.”
Clodagh Murphy, Frisky Business

“It used to worry me sometimes how you threw yourself full-tilt into everything you did and gave so much of yourself to people. But that’s you, and now I miss it.”
