I’m a writer based in Donegal, Ireland. My short film, Lady Death, reached the shortlist for Jameson First Shot 2016, and I have since self-produced the film. It was screened at the 2017 Belfast Film Festival, Film Devour 23, Culture Night 2017, Glór Ennis in Clare, Disappear Here Film Festival in Donegal, and Jim Thorpe Indie Film Festival in Pennsylvania.
My script Bakersville was shortlisted for the Northern Ireland Comedy Writers programme, organised by Grand Scheme Media. My script was performed at the Belfast Media Festival in November 2016.
I was also a finalist in the Sir Peter Ustinov Television Scriptwriting Award in 2014, run by the International Emmy committee, for my screenplay No Great Artist, and again in 2015 for my screenplay The Nighthorse. No Great Artist was also shortlisted for the Red Planet Prize in April 2014.
I’m a keen children’s writer, and my short story, The Little Owl, was published in Poolbeg Press’s Once Upon a Bedtime in 2014, and my short story The Star and the Tree was broadcast on national television on Christmas Eve 2013. In 2019, my picture book Colours and You was published after collaborating with illustrator and friend, Aoife Gallagher.
I am currently working on a number of short films, television shows and feature length scripts, I have a number of manuscripts written for children, and I’m currently working on my first adult novel.
