Dia duit (that’s “hello" if you don’t have the Gaeilge). So, you’ve found my home page. Come in and make yourself at home. It’s a pity I can’t pour you a pint, but I can tell you what you can find in here. There’s a bit about meself, mostly lies written by a publicist, but sure flattery will get you anywhere. If you’d like to know more about my novels about Ballybucklebo, Doctors Laverty and O’Reillly, and the rest of the eejits who live there, there’s stuff about that.

And if you like unaccompanied Celtic singing try listening to the songs recorded by a young woman with a voice like an angel. I have to say that. She’s my daughter, Sarah, but she can surely sing.

I hope you enjoy your trip and then go and buy the books. I only get a couple of dollars a copy but sure every little helps keep the wolf from the door.

Thanks for coming. Slán leat or goodbye, and don’t be a stranger. Feel free to come and visit any time…and bring your friends.

iI was told some folks who are enjoying the Irish Country series have asked for a Christmas story so I’ve written one. Like the rest of the books I’ve added a list of unfamiliar words and a recipe—one simple enough for kiddies to make without risking burning down the whole house.
I hope you enjoy this. It comes with my wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
