Why has a beautiful young woman been committed to an insane asylum? What is the truth behind a shadowy past containing drug use, promiscuity and murder? What secrets does she hold that others will kill to keep HIDDEN? These are questions that psychologist Kate Bennett must answer if she is to save her patient’s sanity…and both their lives. But Kate has secrets of her own, and a dark past that will come back to haunt her.
Hidden is a thriller, set in Dublin, but it is also a voyage of self-discovery for Kate as she learns not just the truth about her patient, but some truths about herself.

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
It’s a hard road but if you’re a writer it’s a necessity for sanity, not a choice; never give up!
I was born in Dublin (Ireland) on the 27-03-1966. Ever since I learned to read I wanted to write and I completed my first full-length novel at the age of 10 (no, I don’t still have it, alas; I’d love to look back now on the me that was). That was me hooked and I’ve been doing it ever since, more or less, though occasionally life gets in the way. I lived and worked in various different countries for many years but Dublin always seemed like home (or at least I feel less out of place there than anywhere else) and eventually I returned and settled down.
I married Eimear on the 14-07-2001 (Yes, I had to check the date). She’s the No. 1 litigation lawyer in Ireland but a wonderful person nonetheless, and the anchor that stops me drifting away and getting lost on the dark seas of my own mind.
We have three perfect boys and a less than perfect dog, now alas full grown and apparently more walking toxic waste producer than dog! And yes, all parents think their kids are perfect but ours actually are. So there.
