About meI am from the West of Ireland and I now live in Paris. I have written five novels, 'Another Life', 'The Imitation of Patsy Burke', 'Green Blood is for France', 'Sylvie's Story' and 'Nobody I know'. The action in these novels takes place in Ireland, France or the Congo.

About my libraryI have about fifteen thousand books, mainly in French and English but also with a few German and Irish ones, which I am slowly adding to LibraryThing. I am interested in fiction, poetry, philosophy, history, science writing, economics, psychology, business and geopolitics.
