Author has written 4 stories for Ballykissangel.

I study, work, worship, and tell bad jokes for small sums of money in a lakeshore city somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere. One can never have enough alter egos.

Thumbprints I've identified in my own work so far: struggles with temptation (usually lost or partially lost by Chapter 2); gobs of dialogue; characters throwing wine or junk food at their problems. Also, so far all my titles are six syllables long, which wasn't deliberate to start but now I feel like I have to maintain it. (Neurotic. Yes.) Areas for continued work and improvement: word economy; constructing subplots. Prefer WAFF to angst, but also prefer citrus to sugar.

I'm painfully shy about replying to reviews, but I cherish them immensely.

The first time it didn't happen by sunburntdaisy reviews
So much was always unsaid, and in this story a whole lot more was going on behind the scenes. Beginning with the play in the first episode of season two, and continuing from there.

Something to Write Home About by just-normal reviews
An effort to re-write the ending of the Reckoning/Amongst Friends without betraying the way Mr. Prendiville chose to end things - that's nothing to say that it doesn't completely laugh in the face of the rest of the remaining series, but nonetheless. My version of righting the wrong. Enjoy!

A Different Kind Of Love by Carrie86 reviews
Set at the end of season 4, start of season 5 - the story of Niamh, how it should have been! Well, some dramatic things still happen, but at least Niamh has some support from her friend Assumpta.

The Polar Bear by Philthefeet reviews
A continuation of the Polar Bear scene from 'The Reckoning', with a happily-ever-after ending. Although I'd only intended this to be one chapter, I've added some more. Hope you all like it. And apparently, the court-case never happened in my version.

The Faithful Departed reviews
Set after the sudden end of Series 6. Ballykissangel's dirty little secret comes to light: Brian Quigley's wasn't the only fake death. (Sometimes the only way to fix a ludicrous story arc is to throw another ludicrous premise at it.) Peter/Assumpta; Niamh/Ambrose (yes, really) and maybe other pairings as well.
