Welcome to my blog. Here, I explore the research and the background for my historical fiction series.
I’ve been fascinated by history since I moved to Dalkey, County Dublin as a seven-year-old. My happiest childhood memories are of playing at Coliemore Harbour, looking with longing at Dalkey Island, scheming about the day I would steal a boat and go there.
My childhood is best summed up by the following facts: I grew up the daughter of a tormented mother, with a saint of a father, and lived in a magical land. I belong to an exclusive club whose members are my four sisters. There was unending stimulus for my imagination in the streets, parks, and harbors of Dalkey. I’m fortunate to have many rich memories of the kindness of people in that land of unending adventure.
So, welcome to my blog. I hope someday to find my way home to the town and area which captured my heart forever so many years ago.
