I've been a professional writer all my working life. My
commissions include books, original tv dramas and contributions
to series; radio soap opera, features, documentaries and
plays; screenplays; chamber opera libretti; and interactive
My memoir The
House on an Irish Hillside was published by
Hodder & Stoughton UK and Hachette Irl in 2012. Its unabridged
audiobook, read by myself and with music by Wilf Judd, will
be published by Crimson
Cats Audiobooks in Spring 2014.
I'm currently working on a novel set in contemporary inner
London and wartime Bosnia, and on a non-fiction title centering
on my family's complex loyalties and involvements at the
time of Ireland's 1916 Rising.
