historical ballinrobeMy mother’s journal, Green Are the Hills Far Away, talks of life in the early 20th century in Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo. For more on Ballinrobe visit this link which is full of fascinating historical information.

Excerpts from my mother’s journal were featured in my recent book ‘Who Do You Belong To?’ Realising that it was a valuable record of the social history of Ballinrobe my sister Kathryn and I decided to publish ‘Green Are the Hills Far Away’, together with many photos of days gone by, as a tribute to our mother’s memory; an unabashed account of a bold, spirited life lived to the full. It is now available for purchase.

I’m happy to advise that my book will be on sale in bookstores in Ireland from mid November. I’m planning a trip to Ireland in early December and am really looking forward to doing interviews and book signings there. I’ve had a great response to Who Do You Belong To? in South Africa and hope that readers in Ireland will also enjoy the next phase of my journey.

My new book, Who Do You Belong To? is in the final edit and design stage and will be ready to go to print very soon. It chronicles the unexpected path my life took after the publication of Remember Me? I’m looking forward to sharing this next part of my story shortly. Launching in August 2010.
