Here are some of the interviews I’ve done online, on radio and in print in the past few months. (All my books can be found on Amazon UK), Amazon (US) worldwide and are available (in Europe) from my online bookstore.
I’ve done about ten articles on writing screenplays for writing.ie. Based on my book Write That Script, they cover character, idea, plot, structure and you can find them all listed here (https://www.writing.ie/resource-types/write-for-stage-screen/) along with tons of other useful and interesting material.

Writing for the stage
On the subject of theatre, there’s a recent interview here that appeared in the AboutFACE Theatre Company’s #theatremakeslifebetter blog post for #worldtheatreday, 27th March 2020. AboutFACE is Theatre Company in Residence 2020 at The Civic). And another in the Yana Writes About Theatre blog, which was published while I was putting on my last play, All Thumbs.
Perhaps because I come from a print journalism background, there’s still something special about having an article in the paper – maybe it goes back to my days (13 years-worth) as a freelance journo! So I was chuffed last week when Orla O’Driscoll’s interview with me appeared in the Northside People. How she got one hour of chat down to 500 words, I have no idea! (The focus though was where my latest novel, The Angelica Touch, had come from! It’s available on Amazon and from my online store here.
