Felicity's Wedding has joined A Type of Beauty, the story of Kathleen Newton. Both are now available in digital form and, so far, the feedback is good.

Felicity's Wedding is the story of a contemporary Irish family. Felicity's wedding is the catalyst that causes havoc, wrecks relationships and forces everyone to reassess their lives. It is based on fact, on a story I heard as an 11-year old child with a penchant for eavesdropping.When first published is was book club choice in Germany.

A Type of Beauty, the story of Kathleen Newton is too based on fact but has ended up as a somewhat fictionalised account of the short, colourful life of Kate Kelly who lived from 1854-1882. She was mistress and muse and only love of French painter Jacques Tissot and their very open love affair scandalised Victorian morals.
