If I Was a Child Again -

If you're doing your Xmas shopping early this weekend, can I ask that you keep this lovely book in mind? 100% of the royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to Barnardos educational programmes.


Brief Extract below from my story 'Light Within the Dark'

A number of years back a woman I had briefly met asked me a straightforward question. "What kind of a childhood did you have?" My answer was both short and swift. "Don't go there," I said. Thankfully she took the hint, and didn't. But I still remember the emotional torrent behind my response, even if the woman in question wasn't aware of it.

About the book
If I Was a Child Again is a collection of memories and inspirational words from some of Ireland's finest writers, journalists and TV personalities as they tell us what they would do if they could be a child again for one more day. Some recall their fondest childhood memories, some are bittersweet, while others provide uplifting words of wisdom for today's children. This book will make you laugh and cry but, above all, it encapsulates the magic of childhood.
