About Dr Niamh

When I was a little girl (a very, very long time ago), I used to love learning new, really big words like ‘discombobulate’. As I grew, my love of words grew too, until I loved them so much, I could not stop writing them down. One day, as I was scribbling a particular word, a very peculiar thing happened. The word shouted at me, “Stop! Don’t put me there!” As you can imagine, I was shocked and nearly fell off my chair. When I recovered somewhat, I said to the word, “Could you stop shouting, please? I am not used to it.” Can you guess what happened next? No! I thought not. The word said, “I might be small, but I will misbehave if you do not use me properly. I will not tell the story you would like me to tell. I will say something entirely different!” I dropped my pen. I hoped that by dropping my pen, the word would stop talking. Alas! It did not. It carried on chitterchobbling, even after the ink had dried. I was in a pickle. I could not allow my words to run away with my story, now could I? I don’t know about you, but when this sort of thing happens, there is only one thing left to do if you prefer not to spend your time arguing. “Very well,” said I. “I will do as you ask if you will just be quiet and allow me to concentrate.” Since that day, I have been paying special attention to every word I invite into my stories. After all, a story should say exactly what it means to say and not be led astray.

    Hello Niamh – I would be delighted to have The Bridge Club read by one of your reviewers. I did click on the link above to go to your review page but the format was too large for me to access the comment box. Have you heard that from anyone else?

      Thank You, Patricia. Teething problems and Wix links playing up again. It is a very intuitive web-builder, but very temperamental…a bit like me sometimes. I will fix and then please add your details there. I will leave instructions.

        I think you might have a small screen, in which case, I will have to re-format the blog. Drat! I didn’t realise that would happen. I will need all your book details to be sent to Deb Hockenberry so that she can add to the Doc on our group page. Could you private message them to her on Facebook until I have a chance to take a look at this?

    This is a great idea. Wish I could do more to help, but I have my hands full with the reviews I’m writing now. Am still happy to submit the books that I review.
