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
