Please note that the book has not been put forward to a publisher yet for a few different reasons, but I hope that some day it the near future it will be available for the wider public. Get in touch if you are interested in learning more about my story.


I was born in Belfast in 1981. As a child I grew up knowing only a life forged by The Troubles. I was surrounded by conflict for two decades as well as many social and economical problems.

Unfortunately I quickly realised that I faced my own troubles and faced a conflict within myself trying to deal with how the world was around me.

I am now happily married with three beautiful children but I will never take this life for granted and this book is a reminder to me of how far I have come.
