Hello and welcome.

 

I am a writer and illustrator 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 about lonely misfits.

 

I am inspired by unsung men and women living quietly heroic lives behind the privet hedges and half-drawn blinds of suburbia. I do not write about The Troubles but my characters are usually 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.
