Hi, thanks for visiting my page. I’m a fantasy and science fiction author from Ireland. I love to blend my passion for Medieval and Renaissance history with the freedom of the fantasy environments to create fast paced heroic fantasy adventures with compelling characters and high stakes—exactly the types of stories that I love to read, and I hope you’ll like them too.

I’m delighted to announce the first book in my new fantasy trilogy, The Squire, which comes out on Tuesday 27 April.

My next books are already well under way, and I've a couple of new projects that occur in different worlds (and genres!) that I'm very excited about, and hope to unveil soon. If that’s too long to wait, then please check out my other books, all of which are currently available!
