I am 48 years old and live in Waterford, Ireland. I have been writing since I was fifteen, and wrote the first draft of my fantasy fiction novel "Dark Messiah," at age 16 before rewriting in my twenties. The book has undergone eleven drafts before I self-published in July 2015.

I spent 18 months writing "Cain" about eleven years ago, including three months on research. I wrote "Legacy" in my late teens before rewriting it in my twenties and has undergone five drafts. I have written the second draft of my fourth novel Grace's Choice; which is a mixture of supernatural, historical fiction and romance.

In addition, I have been offered two mainstream publishing contracts and once had the same literary agent as the late fantasy author Terry Pratchett.
