LITTLE RED AND OTHER STORIES. (BELFAST, BLACKSTAFF PRESS, 2020)
TWELVE THOUSAND DAYS. A MEMOIR OF LOVE AND LOSS. (BELFAST, BLACKSTAFF PRESS,
'It is a precise and honest self-portrait, carefully crafted, reticent and then revealing, but also absorbing and moving.'
Colm Toibin, Irish Times, 1st December 2018.
'Written with love and the relentlessness of memory, it should comfort and inspire, while provoking, even embarrassing, the people in power into trying harder, and doing better for everyone.'
Eileen Battersby, The Sunday Times.
'It is a life in many ways ordinary and yet rendered extraordinary here by this lyrical and tender account of the complexities of a life richly lived, a domestic world that might have remained hidden had her husband not been taken from her in circumstances
that give rise to quiet fury. This is a memoir nobody would wish to ever have to write but the journey of loss it charts that will chime with readers who know the double-edged price of love: where one partner is always left behind to try to make sense of it
