So Begins the Mythological Cycle

Following the award of second place in the Trinity College Book of Kells creative competition for my short story, The Spiral, I consider my arse well and truly kicked into gear. I hereby pledge make serious roads into my planned series of Irish mythology novels, Song of Ireland.

The Spiral was an experiment to 'test' the research I've been doing for the past two years into the myths and legends of Ireland. The story is set in AD800 and follows Aodhán, an Ionian monk struggling to find inspiration to create a book that will 'turn the darkness into light'. Following a dream of a talking raven, Aodhán sets out for Ireland, where he meets an interesting and ancient figure.

Having received such a prestigious award, I take it as my cue to end the research and begin the execution.

Stay tuned for more information on The Spiral and Song of Ireland.

Stuck for Christmas Pressie Ideas?

Well, look no further because C is for Cabbage is out now.

And what a beauty she is too. 

In aid of Aoibheann’s Pink Tie, the national children’s cancer charity, C is for Cabbage is a collection of 20 short stories from 17 truly terrified authors. Open with care, because the pages are crawling with fairies, lobsters, and strangely hip dinosaurs. There’s magic and enchantment, detective twins and drunken wizards. It’s got ghosts, ghouls, and lovestruck vampires; zombies, secret societies, and strange little men who tinker with toys. With fun and frolics, and maybe a mild curse or two, (not to mention an extraordinary pair of knitting needles,) C is for cabbage is sure to have something for everyone, children and adults alike.

Available in eBook and paperback (and soon to be in audio format too). All royalties from sales of the book go to Aoibheann's Pink Tie. 

A fun, worthy, and beautiful Christmas present, I think you'll all agree.

Emma Ennis Inc.

My business cards arrived today. I figured I'd need them in case, you know, I ran into Guillermo del Toro in the t'local pub some night and hadn't a copy of my book on hand.

Either way, Guillermo or no, having business cards has a serious pong of adult off it. Wouldn't you agree?

One of my first duties as adult was to blur the contact details. This grown up stuff ain't so dippicult.
