In my new historical fiction, 'Hitler and Mars Bars', I tell the tale of a remarkable child and era.

Background Information

I am a Canadian writer, based in Britain, and I began freelance writing at the turn of this new century. I've written mostly history, arts/music and human interest articles for Canadian and Irish newspapers and magazines including the Toronto Star, Mississauga News, Derry Journal, Banbridge Leader and Ireland's Own magazine.

I also contributed articles to an Irish local history publication, The Brookeborough Story, and the Fermanagh Authors Association's 2008 Miscellany. My short story, The Contest, was shortlisted and broadcast on the Downtown Radio (Belfast) 1998 Short Story Contest.

My first novel, 'Hitler and Mars Bars' was released in March 2008. More information about it can be found on my website:

While I love many styles of writing, my fiction writing has been influenced by writers such as Maeve Binchy, Alice Taylor, Michael McLaverty and Robert Ryan.

'Hitler and Mars Bars' was the overall winner in Trafford Publishing and Ireland's Own Magazine's 2004 Book Deal Contest.
