When she isn’t writing she devotes much of her time to her local lifeboat station on Lough Derg, Co Tipperary - the RNLI’s first inland lifeboat station in Ireland. She has been a volunteer since the service began there in May and today is an inshore lifeboat helm and lifeboat press officer.

    Indulge in gourmet fare aboard 'Shannon Princess,' listed in Ireland's Blue Book and featured in the hit Irish TV show Neven's Irish Food Trails. Disembark to visit a whiskey distillery, attend a falconry display and observe an authentic handweavers' workshop. Enjoy lunch ashore at an oyster bar in Galway and swap stories with the locals in a pub. Although I have always dabbled with writing I did not publish my first book until Killaloe nestles on the banks of the majestic river Shannon a mile downstream from the mighty lough Derg largest of the three lakes on the river/5.
