About meBorn in a little townland in Ireland called Kilrush in County Clare. Came to the U.S. as the age of 7 with my family and settled and grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Now living in the beautiful little town of Mount Dora, Florida with my wife and twelve-year old daughter, both of whom love to read!

The young lad in the middle of the picture holding the football is yours truly, taken many moons ago while living in Galway, Ireland.

About my libraryBooks are arranged by American fiction and non-fiction, books about books, Southern literature and history, Irish-American literature and history, Chicago and Pittsburgh architecture, and Irish literature, folklore, poetry, history, memoir and music.
