Welcome to my blog, shortlisted for the Littlewoods Ireland Blog Awards 2016.
Here you’ll find my reviews and opinion pieces on television, music, film and anything else that inspires me to write, or grabs my attention.
I’m a writer for the Coronation Street Blog which I represented as a finalist in two categories at the UK Blog Awards 2016 in London. I have been invited to attend several exclusive previews and interview cast members at ITV in Manchester as well as being interviewed myself by invitation on BBC Radio and Ireland’s Today FM about the programme. You can read my blogs on all of these here.
I hold an MA in Film and Television Studies and a BA (Hons) in Film, Literature and Drama. My research interests include television, social media, comedy, celebrity culture, fame, fandom and soap opera. My MA research on Coronation Street achieved first class honours and was selected to feature at the Fan Studies Network conference in Regents University, London.
I enjoy writing prose and poetry, and my poems have been selected to feature in the Dublin Poetry Map as part of Poetry Day Ireland.
My other interests include drama & performance, singing, going to gigs, playing guitar, engaging in a spot of genealogy, and chatting endlessly about television with anyone happy to do so.
I love to hear from readers and those interested in what I do, so do feel free to contact me.
All work you find here is my own. Coronation Street images are the copyright of ITV.
