I’m delighted to tell you I’m writing a new novel at the moment, and the working title is THE OLD HOUSE ON PARADISE STREET. It’s a romance and a comedy too, and it’s Christmassy, and set in a small seaside town in Ireland. I may be quiet on Twitter for the next few months!

Hello and welcome to my web-site!


I am a writer and painter based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Before becoming a writer I studied for four years at the THE BELFAST SCHOOL OF ART, graduating in Illustration. My work has been short-listed by the ROYAL ULSTER ACADEMY.


My debut novel, THE TEA HOUSE ON MULBERRY STREET, was first published in 2003 and became an international bestseller. I write about groups of lonely people finding sanctuary in old or peculiar buildings. My books have been published in 22 countries and sold half a million copies. I  am currently working on a new collection of paintings, and my eighth novel which is called THE OLD HOUSE ON PARADISE STREET.


Thank-you for supporting my work, if you do, and for following me on Twitter. All comments, messages, reviews, likes and retweets are hugely appreciated.


Have a nice day!
