It is a Victorian romance and mystery set in Dublin, Ireland and the English Lake District. For more information see the dedicated page The Bowes Inheritance


I am delighted to announce that In Three-Quarter Time, a WW1 era short story for Kindle, was published in February 2017 and will form part of a US/Irish Anthology to be published later this year. It is a love story set in my native Dublin.


In March 2017, I published my first contemporary short story – The Lighthouse Keeper. It is a ghost story with an eerie link to the past.

 It gives me great pleasure to say that my next short read (novelette) Christmas at Malton Manor is now published. This is a pure Victorian romantic tale about love and homecoming.
