Bookselling at Waterstones Drogheda

Some of you may know that as well as running this blog and writing fiction I also work part time as a bookseller at my local Waterstones. Here are some pictures of some of the things I've been involved with at Waterstones over the last few years.

Here are some of my favourite ghostly tales which I used in the Lisa Loves promo along with fellow bookseller Lisa Corr. You can find reviews for the books pictured above here on the blog.
More recently myself and fellow Children's Bookseller Maera Black, put together this fab display of Irish Fiction titles for kids of all ages.
Here is a picture of Bippi the Book Bear. Bippi and I do the weekly storytime event every Saturday. Here Bippi is in vampire/ fortune telling garb but I can assure you he is usually much friendlier looking.

Some other events which I have run or organised include author events with Eithne Massey, Erika McGann,  Shiela Kiely, Joe Murphy, Helen Moorhouse, Shirley Benton, Michelle Jackson, Claudia Carroll, Nicola Pierce and Laura Jane Cassidy. I have run book clubs, writing groups, signings, Q&A sessions and panel events and I have also assisted at events organised by my wonderful colleagues Lisa and Maria.
Here are a few more pictures of events which I have been involved with
Erika McGann signs some copies of her debut novel for children The Demon Notebook
 The Literary Ladies event with l-r Helen Moorhouse, Shirley Benton and Michelle Jackson
 Joe Murphy at the launch of 1798 Tomorrow the Barrow we'll Cross at Millmount Museum
So as you can see I like to keep myself very busy.


  1. Jealous! So nice to have a job that encompasses your passion for books. The events sound like great fun.
