About

Welcome to my site! My debut collection of short stories, The Rainy Day, was published  in 2018 by Penniless Press. Fiction has previously been published in Ireland, UK and US. Screen and stage credits include RTE, Scripts Ireland Playwriting Festival, Fastnet Film Festival  (Irl) and  Wasteland Film Festival  (US) amongst  others. I have a B.A. in English and Italian and an M.A. in English (Writing). I also have an advanced certificate in media production. I recently submitted my PhD in Creative Writing and Textual Studies (John McGahern) at NUIG. I was awarded the Sparanacht Ui Eithir in 2016 and the NUIG Write-Up Bursary in 2018 for my academic research. I have presented my work at academic conferences and my scholarship is forthcoming in the peer-reviewed Journal of Franco-Irish Studies. I have worked at NUIG as a writing teacher/tutor since 2013. This role included the conception of creative writing courses, delivery of lectures, setting of academic and creative exercises, assessment and feedback for undergraduate students. I have also worked as a script editor/story analyst for Room 12 Productions during this time. My professional practice is writing fiction and material for stage or screen. However, I also enjoy working as a creative writing tutor and facilitator.
