Instead of spending Saturday doing the usual household chores today I escaped and went with fellow Fermanagh Authors’ Association members Vicky Herbert, Sean McElgunn and Julie Franco  to Cavan Town for the afternoon. We were invited to

My first time in the studio


Northern Sound Radio’s studio to record some of our stories for a radio programme their DJ Karina Charles is preparing.

    Although it was my 3rd time on radio it was my 1st time reading my work. DJ Karina was very good which kept the nerves away and enabled me to read at ease. Thank you Karina I had a great afternoon.
