My first book, In Her Shoes – Women of the Eighth will be published late August 2020, with New Island Books.
A memoir and anthology, beautifully bound and presented.
I am writing the story of community, activism, motherhood, grief, trauma, belonging. I am writing the story of my journey to Ireland, through to my motherloss, and creating an art project that became a pivotal part of the Campaign to Repeal the 8th Amendment.
In Her Shoes is a testament to the importance of women’s stories. How giving space for the taboo to walk among us can be healing and transform a nation. I take you on a journey of how grief can push us through and bring new things into life, while nestled in the heart of the book are 32 consenting anonymous stories of people impacted by the eighth amendment in Ireland.
The book forever nestles Her Story into history, a place where women are often written out.
