I write poems largely influenced by nature and by the past. I have 3 poetry collections – most recent – Telling Time, launched by Writers’ Week Listowel 2012 – which is a creative study of the childhood of St. Patrick. I have on historical novel – Brigid of Kildare – life of St. Brighid commissioned by Kildare Arts Service. I give readings and talks at festivals and to groups. I facilitate creative writing workshops in schools, prisons and with groups around the country. I have edited 26 books and was Guest Editor of The Midland Arts and Culture Review. I was Laois Writer in Residence in 2010. Currently I am involved as a writer to a Housing Regeneration Development in Kildare. I enjoy doing my own writing and also working closely with people ‘unlocking their creativity’ with exercises which I have devised over a long time.
