About Me

“Remember your name. Do not lose hope — what you seek will be found. Trust ghosts. Trust those that you have helped to help you in their turn. Trust dreams. Trust your heart, and trust your story.” – Neil Gaiman, Instructions

Growing up in a boring town in Pennsylvania inspired me to make things up so life would be more interesting.

Eventually, I moved to Florida and earned my B.A. in screenwriting and English from Jacksonville University. A couple years later I hopped across the pond and got my M.A. in creative writing from University College Cork in Ireland.

I lived abroad for a year and a half, traveling around Europe and writing because, well, words change the world, ya dig?

I currently live in New York City.

Enjoy the site and happy reading.

    Hi Nora,
    What’s the story girl?
    I am a Cork man who left 30 years ago and now reside in Atlanta. While I’m thankful to the US for providing me with a great lifestyle, I will always be from Cork. Thank you for your wonderful letter to Cork, I’m so pleased my city welcomed you in and made you feel at home. My best wishes for your future, and sure you know it’s only a hop skip and a jump back to Leeside whenever you want.
    Good Luck
    Dave Canty


    • Dave,

      Lovely to hear from you! Atlanta, that’s not far from me here in Jacksonville, Florida!

      Cork is a wonderful place and so near and dear to my heart. Thank you for taking the time to read my piece and I’m happy you enjoyed it! All the best to you.
