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.

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!

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.
