My debut novel 'When All Is Said' came out in 2019. And now I'm thrilled to add my second book 'Listening Still' to the list. Coming out on April 29th, 2021, it is the story of a funeral director with a gift. My writing has been published all over the world, from the UK to the US and from Taiwan to Lithuania. It has been published in twenty foreign languages. In 2019 I was honoured to be awarded Newcomer of the Year at the Irish Book Awards. To me, writing is all about great storytelling and I hope you find that within the pages of my books, from Maurice Hannigan in 'When All Is Said' who sits to the bar of his local hotel to raise five toasts to the five most important people in his life, to Jeanie Masterson in 'Listening Still' who is struggling under the weight of obligation to the family funeral directors in a small midlands Irish town. I took up writing when I was forty-four, and my first book was published when I was 50. So I am testament to the phrase "It's never too late."
