Head Shot

Welcome to my site! My second novel The Mackon Country will be published by Penniless Press, UK shortly. This follows  my debut novel Delia Meade (2020) and my collection of stories, The Rainy Day. 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  many others. I completed a  Ph.D. in Creative Writing and Textual Studies (John McGahern) at NUIG.  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 was awarded the Sparanacht Ui Eithir in 2016 and the NUIG Write-Up Bursary in 2018 for my academic research. I have presented at national and international academic conferences and my recent scholarship has been published in the peer-reviewed journals New Hibernia ReviewEstudios Irlandeses,  Liverpool Postgraduate Journal of Irish Studies and the Journal of Franco-Irish Studies.  My work investigates 20th/21st century Irish Literature at the intersection of Narratology. 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. I was recently invited  to join the panel of manuscript evaluators with the Arts Council of Ireland. I have worked in academic support for students with disabilities at university and I have a keen interest in future technologies which will help improve  accessibility for all learners. My professional practice is academic research and writing fiction or material for stage and screen. However, I also enjoy working as a creative writing and Irish literature lecturer and tutor.
