Hi! Thank you very much for checking out my website for my book, The Stone. I published this novel about Dame Alice Kyteler in 2008, and have been lucky enough to receive good reviews and some kinds words about it. I love discussing this book, and others, with people, so if you want to contact me you can reach me at

About myself; I was born and grew up in Kilkenny, Ireland. I now live in Dublin with my husband and our little son, and am writing as much as life will permit. I’ve finished a novella last year that I am still working on, and have started on a new project. Finding time to write is always a challenge, but as any writer will tell you, if it is important you’ll find the time.

I’m a huge fan of Alberto Manguel, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, and Jim Butcher, as well as Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte and Shakespeare. There are always good authors to learn about, so if there is anyone you want to recommend send me an email!

Thank you again for checking out the blog, and I very much hope you enjoy the book!
