I am a Western New York writer whose heart is firmly fixed on Ireland and Northern Ireland. A legal assistant by day, when I am not at the law firm I spend much of my time writing from various spots in my house (I have never settled on one writing location). My backyard is one of my favorite places – hence, the View From My Backyard blog. I have two novels out, Walking Through The Mist and Crossing The Lough Between, and poetry collections, Fragility and A Song Of Ireland. In my off time, I enjoy the company of family and friends, quiet moments with God, and photography and music.
My favorite quote is “dream no small dreams; they have no magic to stir men’s souls” (anonymous). I hope my passion and drive to follow my dreams encourages you to follow your own.
