Welcome from Norah


Hulloo, Failte, how are you? I’m Norah Deay and I’m delighted you’ve found me.

I’m from Ireland. Wicklow to be exact. The ‘Garden of Ireland’ it’s called.  I think that’s where my love of trees and secret garden places comes from. I lived on an estate a bit like Downton Abbey for the formative years of my life and never lost my love of the countryside.

My feet were built for wandering. We moved into house number 5 just before my sixth birthday. Far from putting me off the idea of moving ever again, I adore the excitement of new places and together with numerous locations in Ireland, have made my home at various times in London, The Hague, New Zealand and now, Ireland again.

Along the way, I had my son Jamie who now has two little girls of his own.

I write stories about people that are familiar to us.  Situations that could arise and are not always resolved as we expect.

I write short stories and have published the first in a cosy mystery series and am working on the second. I’ve also written two non-fiction books called How To Become The Go To Person and How to Get Your House Ready For Sale in 30 Days. if you’d like to buy any of my writing you can find me on Amazon – just click on the links on the nonfiction page.

I believe that there but for the Grace of God go I, so when I write I try to encourage empathy and sympathy for those less fortunate than ourselves.

I write for the love of it and to know I can entertain someone when they read my stories is a great feeling.

  1. Hi Norah, it’s Carrie from the Writers’ Conference- lovely to meet you and Marea today. I hope you enjoy your evening and the rest of the weekend. I’m so raging I can’t attend for at least another day! I really enjoyed your company and your infectious laughter. Keep in touch. C
