Thank you to Wicklow County Council for inviting me to read and join a discussion with the wonderful Helen Meany, Olivia Fitzsimons and Cassia Gaden Gilmartin in Kilruddery House for Culture Night in September 2020. You can watch it here. I enjoyed being almost between two ferns. But that guy from The Hangover didn’t show.
My former colleague and great friend Matt Fox runs a podcast called Heart of Dad. We talked about what juggling responsibilities of family and work (writing and otherwise), and why I find it hard to break the cycle of phone notifications and other work addictions. I’m basically talking about the themes of more than one short story but like, for real.
