There's a review of my novel You in this week's Connacht Tribune by Gearóid O'Brien, accompanying an article about me and my writing by Judy Murphy. Judy interviewed me for the piece. She calls me 'a young mum' in it. How sweet. I feel like an old hag most of the time.
The Trib's photographer came out to my house to take my pic. I made an effort but I still manage to look weird. I genuinely hate getting my photo taken - I can't seem to smile without looking extremely nervous and half-crazed (as you can see).
The article is very nice, I must say, and the review is positive. These things always make me feel a bit glowy and a bit mortified. You can read some of the article online here.
