I am a poet, writer and teacher, based in Dublin Ireland.
FEB 2021 - my first detective novel THE BODY POLITIC
is out Feb 2021, published by PPP Publishing Ireland, and available on KINDLE and as a paperback (Amazon)
My work has been published in a wide range of anthologies, media, ezines and performance pieces. My collection of poetry Dreams of Reality
is currently available on Kindle and will be in paperback late 2020. My poems have been adapted for several theater performances, and my original naming ceremony was used to raise funds for children's charities in both Ireland and the UK. I have prose pieces on spirituality in several publications e.g. Harp Club and Cauldron: A Harvest of Knowledge.
My latest short story A Stranger Among Friends has been shortlisted for the Cunningham Short Story and will be published in the 2020 winner's anthology. I have poetry included in Poems from the Lockdown, a global collection of poets on the coronavirus era.
I have taught online classes in Poetry and folk magic traditions notably through the Irish Pagan School
I have been a teacher and leader in Irish spirituality for many years, and have written and performed ceremonies for Births, Deaths, Weddings, Cleansing and most recently, Renaming/Separation ceremonies.
I am happy to work for anyone who requires it regardless of any considerations of sexual orientation, gender, or spirituality. My focus is on creating truly bespoke ceremonies, inspired by the needs and aspirations of my clients. I want them to not only reflect the occasion but enable the person to express their unique sense of self.
