I have lived on the Costa Del Sol in southern Spain for nearly five years. I'm learning Spanish but my progress is so slow I'll be word perfect when I'm one hundred and fifty! Prior to that I worked in England for many years. When I left Ireland at the age of eighteen I had no intention of going back, ever. Generally speaking I've kept to that, only returning for the occassional birth, death and marriage.
I am a novice when it comes to writing novels but I love the whole ambience of creating my own original work. I'm constantly amazed when I start writing, I don't know where it's going to go. Then a kind of creative,self hypnosis takes over and somehow I get to a plot, an ending or a punch line.
Interests: I write short stories and poems, usually with humorous twists but sometimes they are dark. Because I'm Irish I try to give them an Irish flavour.
I've just started my first crime novel about contract killers, again with Northern Irish origins.
