Hello and welcome,


I am a writer & illustrator based in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

I graduated from the Belfast School of Art with a degree in Illustration before 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 new stories are out now on Amazon.
