I am Geraldine , writer, fixer of broken toys, knees and in time, hearts. I am wife to the lucky D, mother to three little boys , Ethan, J and Dee and new mother to fur baby Lola. I have been writing all my life about everything and anything got to do with my world. I live on the west coast of Ireland, the lands of saints and scholars. In 2008 my world changed forever forcing me into a dark murky world, no parent would ever want to go but no choice was given.

I write openly and honestly about raising all my boys and what it is like to have a child with a terminal condition .
