Welcome to my website.
My novels are set in the town of Monument, my fictional version of Waterford, where I grew up. These books explore the lives and loves, triumphs and disasters of inter-linked families from the turn of the twentieth century to the present day. Each book ploughs a different furrow across the same landscape, turning up new stories, new characters, all of them utterly from my native place.
I have also written thrillers, and a novel – ‘The Taoiseach’ - loosely based on the life of former Taoiseach Charles J. Haughey.
I am married with a family, live in County Kildare and spend a month or so every year in Waterford. I am a member of Aosdána.
