Hello and welcome.

 

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.

Click on the cover for a link to Amazon, thank-you.

 

I am currently working on a Crime novel.

 

For film & television rights to my books, and for all other publishing and art enquiries please contact me on Twitter.

 

Thank-you for visiting my web-site.
