I dropped into Curiosity Radio HQ to chat to presenters Richard Mulcahy and Tracy Tough to talk about how and why I write, and about winning the Irish Writer's Centre Greenbean Novel Fair 2016. We had a nice long chat about the things that inspire and frustrate us, and the occasional homicidal urge we all harbour (admit it). You can listen to our chat here.
This podcast series is varied and interesting and full of lovely gems just waiting for the curious among us to uncover. You could check out Professor Mark Griffiths talk about behavioural addiction, Professor Ronnie Roberts on the weird and wonderful world of microbes, or how to be a beach bum with kitesurfer Francois Colussi. All of the podcasts were broadcast on Dublin City Fm, and can be found via the Curiosity Radio Souncloud channel.
Side note - I also voiced the funky intro! They turned me over and shook me and I gave 'em all my candy. Sure, why not. They're deadly!

So, my short story, 'The Window,' has found a nice home in very good company in LosslIt Magazine. Losslit is a brilliant digital literary project that was started by Aki Schilz and Kit Caless (Hollywood names if I ever heard 'em) on twitter back in 2014, and it has grown and grown. The magazine allows writers space to expand on the theme of loss beyond the 140 character limit of the tweet, and is a lovely complement to the Writeclub that happens every 1st Wednesday of the month from 9-11pm BST. Both the magazine and the monthly twitter rendezvous have interest and submissions from all over the world, and it is lovely to be a part of that from my adrift speck of the earth. The last Writeclub (June 1st) even managed that capricious feat of #trending in the twittersphere. How fun. You can read my story, 'The Window' and the rest of this stunning magazine, here.
