Originally from the states, (Waterbury, Connecticut) but liking it here for the past ten years in Ireland. Spent a few years before that in Cape Breton Nova Scotia – great winters there for writing. Travelled a bit, worked a lot, and raised two wonderful children as well as horses (Morgan, Andalusian, Thoroughbred, Irish Sport Horse) in U.S. and Ireland. Have worked as a dishwasher, floor washer, textile mill labourer, construction labourer, pesticide sprayer, fire safety inspector, toy shop manager, women’s shoe shop manager, substance abuse counsellor, etc. currently cutting grass in a small mediaeval village in county Westmeath. Not much else is new. Saw Neil young at Malahide Castle Dublin in June ‘08 - great concert. Anyway - Stuff published by small mags here and there. Lapwing Belfast is considering another collection. About it for now.
