About The Geen Geenie :
As a freelance writer I’ve had articles published in various magazines covering diverse topics, often providing original photography accompaniment. I continue to review books for Children’s Books Ireland to the present day.
In a previous life as a writer / illustrator (2001- 2010), I created short comics culminating with strips featured in acclaimed ‘Accent UK’ Anthologies (Robots, Zombies and Western), and a solo work ‘These City Walls’ supported by the Arts Council Northern Ireland.
And as a fiction writer I contributed short stories to Elephant Words spanning a period from 2009 -2012. Eventually publishing 36 of my best pieces as a collection, Flash Fiction, with each story accompanied with it’s own photo- illustration in 2014.
