I grew up in George FitzMaurice country where a unique mix of Gaelic and Elizabethan English permeates the language of the people. I have always loved the sound of language. Along with English, I speak Irish, Spanish, French, Portuguese with smatterings of West African Krio, Hungarian and Arabic, and am currently learning Sanskrit. I write in English, Irish and Spanish, and have a poem in Arabic too. With three poetry collections under my belt, I'm working on the fourth which will is looking like it will be mostly in Irish.
