From my home in Dublin, Ireland, I write contemporary romance of the hotter variety. Nothing excites me more than two characters thrown together, alive with wants and needs and a whole load of problems. My heroes are straight-talking, strong, sharp. My heroines are open, powerful, proud.

My stories lean toward the guy’s perspective, because there’s nothing as fascinating as the male point of view.

I have completed several manuscripts, aiming for the category romance market.  While two single title suspense manuscripts languish on my hard drive, those babies will have to wait their turn while I work on my category novel ‘Tempted By the Tycoon’.

While I read widely, I do have some auto-buy authors including Nora Roberts, Sarah Morgan, Brenda Novak, Harlan Coben, Sandra Marton, Stephen King and Edna O’Brien.

I love craft, taking classes, doing fast first drafts (and trawling through the resulting poo), running writing sprints, moderating an online loop of writers in my RWA chapter ‘From The Heart Romance Writers’, and mixing with the smart writers that my job introduces me to.

I am proud to be a donor to the Brenda Novak’s For the Cure Online Auction for Diabetes Research. Since 2013, I have handcrafted calligraphed pieces whose primary focus is all things Irish. So far, my work has contributed over $700!

Before writing, I enjoyed a long and varied career in software testing. Met the kindest and truest friends both in Dublin and around the world, and picked up a gorgeous programmer in the process.

I live in Dublin with the love of my life and our two beautiful sons.
