Meet the Author

I've worked and lived in communications all my life: journalist, subeditor, editor, actor, director, producer - here in Ireland and abroad.


I fell in love with Hiberno-English a long time ago - English as it is spoken and written in my country - and have been in love with it ever since.


I love the challenge of pen and blank paper: creating characters, storylines, drama.


I love the wind and the sea and the mountains, fresh air and green grass and the sun on my back (I play a mean game of golf) - all of which I have around me...


Not to mention the warm humour that wells up from a big heart.


If I may share with you some of the gems that have influenced me down the years; I've tried to abide by them but didn't always succeed!


"You make your way by taking it...


"It does not just happen, you have to make it happen...


"Sometimes in stooping down to pick up two pennies one can lose a fortune..."


Interests


Friendship - when it is not possessive, controlling...


Quiet. Silence - a positive value completely overlooked by many today...


Reading - carefully judged. If I'm not hooked by the first sequence - the first paragraph - I won't read any further...


Trying, day in day out, not to spill any more milk... and to stop crying over milk already spilt.


Not suffering fools gladly...


Analysing Casablanca, frame for frame, line by line...


(TBC...)

Likes


Good conversation. The company of my fellow searchers... Con pane... meaning, with bread... hence company...


Dislikes


Arrogant, self-opinionated prigs... Controlling, bullying clerics...


Favourite Quote


"I passionately hate the idea of being with it. I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time." (Orson Welles (1915 - 1985))
