BioI am an Irish writer. My first novel, 'The Longbourn Letters - The Correspondence between Mr Collins & Mr Bennet' was published in April 2017 to international acclaim. As well as receiving 5 star reviews on Amazon & Goodreads, it has been described by Woman's Way magazine as a 'literary triumph' and by the Jane Austen Regency World Magazine as 'a glorious epistolary novel that mixes laugh-out-loud hilariousness with...touching sentiment'. As a result, I was asked to contribute a related article to The Irish Times and invited to speak at the Kinsale Literary Festival in October as well as take part in interviews/podcasts/radio shows and public talks. I have been blessed in life to have met with several Mr Collins' and Mr Bennets'.
My next novel tells the story of Mary Bennet, in her own words. Please download the short story giveaway on this website to get a taster - The Love Letter of Mary Bennet

Short Story - The Love Letter of Mary Bennet
This short story is a taster of the subject matter of my next novel entitle 'Mary Bennet' which tells the story of one of the minor characters from Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. My current novel 'The Longbourn Letters - The Correspondence between Mr Collins & Mr Bennet' touches on what becomes of Mary Bennet after all her sisters have married. I developed the idea for this short story and soon found that I may need to write an entire novel to let Mary tell us her own story in her own words. It is due to be published in early 2018 - meanwhile enjoy this short story.
