I love all things Irish, the language, a good cup of tea,
soda bread, Guinness stew, smoked salmon, banoffee
pie, green hills, happy cows, cheddar cheese,... and all
things Southern, sweet iced tea, southern hospitality,
everything written by authors Louise Penny and
Elizabeth Buchan, Johanna Trollope, winter sunsets,
driving through hot desert nights with the windows
open, coffee and conversation with good friends,
Katherine Hepburn movies, dessert, intimate
gatherings and bright breezy days.
I live in Southern California where I learned humility
by teaching school to remarkably well-behaved 6th
graders, and in County Kerry, Ireland where I take
long walks, listen to traditional music, sigh over gray
skies, Skype with my three adorable grandchildren
and, when the muse strikes, write another novel.
