I was born in Dublin, Ireland and currently live in the ancient town of Kells. I like old things. It makes me feel young. I also love mystery stories, theatre, and most types of music, especially George Harrison and Leonard Cohen. And Chopin. And Gershwin. I'd love to be more like my heroine, Beatrice. She's not only clever but calm, independent and resourceful. I'm only two of those things. No, not telling which.
