I am Irish, living in Dublin married to the Best Man in the Universe (his official title)mother of a gorgeous new baby son and blissfully happy. Yes, we are that sickmaking couple who annoy the face off everyone we meet because we're so flaming happy. Seriously, I rely on him for so much and he's got the best kindest heart in the world.

My other main love is poetry, and I am a published author. I love writing but especially the eliptical elegance of poetry; I've also written several short stories.

I have also co-edited several anthologies and collections of poetry, and have established a small independent publishing group, PPP Publishing.

I also work with musical instruments and by extension, mad musicians.

comment Are fantasy books expected to be trilogies?
That's a fair point Luaren, but the question is whether a rantasy book HAS to be in 3 parts, or more than one part. Subject matter that doesn;t fit into one book obviously should be spread over more than one. The issue is taking a story and writing it with an eye to a sequel that mightn't ever be produced, and that is artificial.
