Celtic Tiger

Having had many students participate in my writing process proved invaluable. My first YA novel, Celtic Tiger, is about Johnny O'Shea, a disenfranchised dropout from Queens, who, after losing his mother to a life of drugs and murder, finds connectedness with his great-uncle on the west coast of Ireland. It leads him to solve the mystery of his mother's death.
Though the novel is yet to be published, its had a healthy share of teen readers who generously offered insights into how they related to a character like Johnny O'Shea. Email me for the complete PDF if you would like to download it for free.

Now would be a good time to tell you I checked out your website the other day to relive the original book club...I was feeling sentimental and I miss you!
I am a huge fan of this series :)
