Sheighle Birdthistle

Mallemort, France


I am an Irish woman living in France with my husband. We live in Provence where I hope to write many masterpieces due to the inspiring location. My husband has also begun a memoir so there are numerous dramatic moments in our household! I have had different careers...taught Ballet to children and fitness to ladies. My fashion boutique was called Mine and Mine after my first collection of self published poetry. After the boutique I opened an Art Gallery before attending University as a mature student. In 1999 I acquired a Degree in English (Honours) then a postgraduate Diploma in Women's Studies and in 2003 I was awarded a Master of Arts (Honours) in Modern English Literature. All awards are from University of Limerick Ireland. We moved to France after some turbulent years of coping with cancer and an accidental gas explosion which left us homeless. Sometimes fact is more exciting than fiction!
