I was brought up in London as part of a large family from County Mayo and started writing in the cupboard under the stairs. Being a shy child among great storytellers it seemed like a good plan to share my stories by writing them down. I haven’t stopped since. I’m currently Writer in Residence at Richmond and Hillcroft Adult Community College where I returned to education as an adult learner. My latest book is a Victorian detective mystery called Things in Jars (Canongate, U.K. out now. Atria, U.S. out Feb 2020). I’m busy working on Novel Four now and also developing original TV projects – watch this space!
