About Me

 

A writer's garret / attic / #Covidmademedoit

Letters from Beyond the Pale started life as a Travel blog. In between writing and blogging I worked in Finance; living in Dublin, Sydney, London and San Francisco. Driven by natural curiosity I travelled extensively and went off the beaten track to meet the most important people of any story, the locals. 


I have also battled cancers, heart failure and infertility, while balancing motherhood and a career. I managed to find the levity in the lousy lows and capture the experiences in my writing.  


I am the luckiest unlucky person you will ever meet, but I’ve beaten the odds, seen the other side and made it home to Ireland where I live with my English husband and American daughter. Nowadays, I am concentrating on my family, my health and my writing. I’ve been on some unforgettable journeys but I’ve found the most interesting stories are often waiting just beyond your doorstep.
