SHINE ON ANTHOLOGY LAUNCH
I have a short story, 'My Name is William Clongallen', in the anthology Shine On: Irish Writers for Shine. Shine is the national organisation dedicated to upholding the rights of all those affected by enduring mental illness. My story is about a Brooklyn man who comes to Ireland to search for the mother he never knew.
Miriam O'Callaghan, wrote the foreword and the book features work from many well known writers, including Claire Keegan, Paul Durcan and Sinéad Morrissey.
Shine On: Irish Writers for Shine will be launched tonight, October the 11th, in the Westin Hotel in Dublin. The book will be in all Irish book shops and can also be ordered here with free delivery worldwide.
