On Hay House Radio online -- http://www.hayhouseradio.com/ -- at 4:00 pm (going by Irish time)you'll hear me interviewed by the amazing Janey Lee Grace, author/singer/BBC presenter. (Check out her Cola Boy video on youtube, it's fabulous.) Yes, I'm talking about PEOPLE OF THE GREAT JOURNEY and life, the universe and everything. It is proving to be a very busy month but I am not complaining. And check out amazon.com, I have two excellent reviews already.

I was born in Ireland and grew up in Toronto, Canada with my seven sisters and two brothers. Left home at seventeen to live in a commune, then headed off across Canada with my pal, Carole, and we hitch-hiked around California for months, then back up to Vancouver(Van as we called it then) and across Canada with two more pals, Linda and Peggy. A year later, headed off to Malaysia and Borneo with Jeunesse Canada Monde/Canada World Youth for a year. Baik-lah! Back home, went to Trinity College at the University of Toronto (posh blokes) while also joining the Canadian Naval Reserve as an Officer Cadet. Trained on the east and west coasts of Canada every summer. Great fun. Then what? Hmm. Started to write books, dodgy personal life (that's personal but let's just say it's been a long time between drinks) started to wander around the world, had a darling daughter, settled down in Ireland, wrote more books.
