Dingle And Its Hinterland: People, Places and Heritage was published in 2017 by The Collins Press. It's a cultural guide to the western end of the Dingle peninsula, illustrated by photos taken by myself and Wilf Judd; with a conversation with someone who lives or works in the area at the core of each chapter. It also features black and white archive photography and specially commissioned maps.

In 2015 The Collins Press commissioned a lifestyle book illustrated with photographs taken by myself and Wilf Judd called  Enough Is Plenty: The Year on the Dingle Peninsula


A Woven Silence: Memory, History and Remembrance  ,also published by The Collins Press in 2015, centres on my family's complex loyalties and involvements at the time of Ireland's 1916 Rising.

My memoir The House on an Irish Hillside was published by Hodder & Stoughton UK in 2012.  The unabridged audio book produced and published by Crimson Cats Audiobooks was released in Spring 2014. 

The eponymous house is in Corca Dhuibhne, Ireland's Dingle Peninsula, which is the westernmost inhabited place in mainland Europe. National Geographic Magazine called it 'the most beautiful place on earth'. 
I fell in love with the area at the age of seventeen, when I first went there to study the Irish language. Now forty years later, my husband and I live and work both there, in a stone house on a mountainside, and in an inner-city flat in London, England.

Many of my children's stories have appeared in spin-off collections from tv and radio programmes: my work for children is published by O'Brien Press.
