Podcast: A chat and a bowl of soup with Madeleine D’arcy

I had one day and night at the recent International Short Story Festival in Cork so I chose the Wednesday. I arrived down and headed straight for coffee and a scone over a short story in the English Market cafe upstairs.

Then, it was off to the Quay C0-op, a massive Health Food type Vegan joint which has been in Cork in years and I had never heard of! I was due to meet the lovely Madeleine D’Arcy to chat about her debut short story collection, Waiting for the bullet and have a spot of lunch.

Here is the podcast. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ab4u2x1tyqevc0o/madeleine.mp3?dl=0

 

Cork International Short Story Festival 2015

I am so excited! I missed last year’s Short Story festival in Cork due to a little baby boy being only 3 weeks old! But, this year, he is bigger and I am getting sleep, we have a routine and my husband is very kind.

I am off to Cork for a day and a night. I am meeting up with Madeleine D’Arcy to chat to her about writing and stuff. Going to get to Deirdre Brennan’s reading, Danielle Mac Laughlin and Tom Morris and I will spend obscene amounts of money on short fiction. There will also be a dinner of tapas at some stage with an old friend who also loves short stories.

Life is the best, you know.
