If I was asked what my dream occupation would be, no matter what my age, I would always have said and still say, a writer or an artist. Art was not a subject available to me at school so I continued to dream. With young children at my feet and the need to work I didn’t have time until I hit the big 40. I completed a writing tuition course, and from then on I haven’t stopped writing.
My achievements as a writer are few, I have been published in women’s magazines, a book of short stories and at Christmas 2013 in the Magazine, “The Holly Bough”.
Among my writing achievements I would list, completing the nanowrimo challenge of writing over 50,000 words during the month of November. I have completed this task three times in the last three years and one of my adult books is due to be released shortly.
My greatest achievement is quite simply: I have been married for thirty years and have two children. Though I grew up in Dublin City, I have lived for most of my life in County Meath. My days are filled with writing, coaching athletics, and volunteering with various groups.
I hope that everyone who reaches this world enjoys it.
