I was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, but moved to America when I was five & a half. My parents owned two Irish restaurants - one in Albany, New York & the other in Dennisport, Cape Cod. I host an Irish radio program with my mom, Mary, also an avid reader, in upstate New York called "Proud to be Irish". I'm an avid reader, love history, writing, listening to music & arts & crafts. I also love to laugh & meet new people. I'm cheerfully owned by an 13 year old cat named Smokey.
