I'm busy completing Take the Soup which, as the title implies, is set in Ireland.
Between 1988 and 1991 I spent a lot of time there courting a pretty young thing in the lovely south Dublin suburb of Terenure. It was not to be, of course - she had far too much sense than to put up with my youth..

Whisper it quietly (counter-intuitive, I know), but Put Right is now up for sale on Amazon. You can find it here.
It's up there so that we can assess the whole upload process and iron out any gremlins. Apart from a couple of minor layout issues, there don't appear to be any.

Britain's capital is over-flowing with top-notch boozers..

"Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes..."
The Beatles' peon to this unremarkable suburban lane in south Liverpool is one of their best loved tunes and has made it one of the world's most famous thoroughfares. My children go to school nearby and each day we see coach-loads of tourists risking thei..

Anna Heuston's favourite shoe shop is in the metquarter in Liverpool, the elegantly refurbished former central post office.
