So, let me kick things off with saying that today is a good day. This is because, today is publication day for my debut novella, The Mongrel.

I’m very proud of my little book and I could not be happier with the response it has received so far from my family, friends, my editor, my colleagues (who offered valuable advice/blurbs), my BETA readers, reviewers and of course, anyone who bought and read it so far...


On the outskirts of Dublin City, a young couple’s relationship hangs by a thread. Isolated and stressed, disputes turn physical, leaving a pregnant Erin Greene in a poor state of mental health, and Philip Montague wanting an escape. They decide to go on a drive and head for Erin’s favorite place as a child, the Wicklow Mountains.

However, a simple oversight leaves them both stranded, with no fuel and a blizzard due.

With no other choice, Philip heads off to the nearest town in search of help, leaving his fiancée alone. With Philip gone and the inevitability of a snowstorm looming, Erin, in order to survive, must battle against her plagued mind and the supernatural elements that lie hidden deep in the hills.

I'm really looking forward to launching the book in Hodges Figgis. It is Dublin's oldest bookshop and an Irish institution. To launch my book here is a really big deal to me and my family. So I hope you can all make it. It's free admission and there will be adult beverages available to guests.

That concludes my debut blog post for

The Burial Ground for Broken Dreams.

Until next time...
