Hello everyone.
Just to introduce myself- I'm retired, I have been writing for 35 years with a fair success in children's writing. My first hardback children's novel is out this month. It is called, Patrick's Gift and deals with a boy who is being bullied at school. My anthology of short Modern Irish stories is out and e-booked at www.virtualtales.com (http://www.virtualtales.com). I am at present looking for an an agent. I have had one but she n ow only represents non-fiction writers. I also write stage plays and screenplays. Nice to meet you all.

Hi Jack ! And welcome. Northern Ireland? Cool :) Congratulations on the childrens book writing success - there's a whole crowd here who write children's fare. And a whole crowd here who act pretty much like children.

You'll love it here :D

Welcome to AW! Where do you call home? I physically left Ireland many years ago but my heart still resides in Portaferry. It always will.

Best wishes.

Hi Jack! :welcome:

My Dad's from NI (Enniskillen), so I'm half Northern Irish.

Come in and have a look around the site, I'm sure you'll find lots to interest you.
