I have [I can’t sing but imagine me singing this part anyway] NEWS! You’ve been asking for a paperback version of Every Other Saturday – the modern romantic comedy out for Kindle since August 2015 – and I’m happy to say the time has finally come! Check out the refreshed cover, beautifully updated by Melody  […]

Now that I am back to writing as a full time gig, I am busy getting super organized. Is the laundry folded and the house in order? Um, no. I said I was getting organized, not changing my personality entirely. What I am doing is trying to make sure everyone who wants to hear from me  […]

Well, I did it. Two weeks ago I took myself out of the running for an amazing training and development job, before the third round of interviews. The job was everything my Day Job Self was looking for: exciting, challenging, learning-focused. I’d have been working in a company known for its amazing corporate culture on  […]

As I was putting the boys in their green clothes this morning, and preparing the ‘traditional’ Irish green smoothie for breakfast, I thought back to the trip Hubs and I took to Ireland in 2008.

Get your romantic comedy fix while you  […]
