In 2007, I hadn't a clue that my first visit to Ireland would be a major turning point in my life. Thanks to that trip, I became a genealogist, located dozens of Irish rellies, bought a renovated 1887 schoolhouse in my Coffey ancestors’ town, wrote two fiction series set in Ireland along with a nonfiction genealogy research book. Being able to combine my passion for writing and genealogy is a dream come true.
I hope you enjoy your trip to Ireland with my latest cozy mystery series, A Mags and Biddy Genealogy Mystery. There’s sure to be plenty of shenanigans!
