Thirteen years ago, when I took a family trip to Ireland, I never dreamed it would lead me to becoming a genealogist, meeting dozens of Irish rellies, writing two fiction book series set in Ireland, and buying a renovated 1887 schoolhouse in my Coffey ancestors’ townland. Being able to combine my passion for writing and genealogy is a dream come true.


I hope you enjoy your trip to Ireland with Mags and Biddy in How to Fake an Irish Wake. There’s sure to be plenty of shenanigans!

The Travel Mishaps of Caity Shaw Series

Why run from your troubles when

you can fly instead? --Caity Shaw

“All I can say is read this book. Buy it, borrow it from a friend, from the library - whatever you have to do! If you're having a bad day, this will cheer you up. If you're having a good day, this will be the cherry on top.”

—5 Stars, Lady with a Quill

"Caity’s a breath of fresh air in a congested world!"

—5 Stars, Bibliopinionated Woman

"Simply put, she's (Caity) like a best friend, who even when we haven't seen each other for a while, we can pick up where we left off, like we've never been apart." 

—Kelly, The Blossom Twins
