I am a writer & painter based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I graduated from the
Belfast School of Art with a degree in Illustration. Then a short story I wrote led
to THE TEA HOUSE ON MULBERRY STREET and six other novels.
I am inspired by unsung men and women living quietly heroic lives behind the privet
hedges and half-drawn blinds of suburbia. My characters are often lonely and isolated,
and searching for a place of sanctuary.
My books have sold half a million copies in Ireland, the UK, the US, Canada, Australia,
New Zealand, Germany, Italy, France, Holland, Poland, Lithuania and Russia. My debut
novel featured on the New York Times bestseller list.
THE LIGHTS ON THE CAROUSEL WERE BEAUTIFUL is out now.
