My books have recently been taken on board by Kenny's Bookshop in Galway, a family run business since 1940, and has grown into a renown Galway institution.


This is what Des Kenny had to say about my books:


"...I spent a delightful 30 minutes reading every one of your  books.

I can only say they are cheerful innovative and instructive.

Thank you for giving me the pleasure. "

A huge thank you to Nancy Scalabroni who entered her book, "CougaMongaMingaMan" into the Cat Writers' Association Awards.  This is what they had to say:


The KUYENDALL IMAGE AWARD is sponsored by CWA, and is presented to the outstanding “image” entry featuring cats – whether photography, illustration, or graphic art. 

The entries for this award were judged by Ruth (Sassy) McClure, an award-winning artist and photographer. She has a longstanding reputation in the north Texas art community for her stained glass, jewelry, metal sculptures and graphic designs. She’s the owner of Enigma Studio in Dallas.

The judge’s comments: “This artist’s work beautifully represented the author’s story. Her cats’ expressions were lovely, the drawings of the long, long tail captured the essence of the story.”

The winning entry is the children’s book, “CougoMongaMingaMan” by Terri Kelleher.






30th October 2014:
