We are very pleased to be selling “Full of Grace” by Patricia Mahoney.

Patricia  was born in Ottawa, Canada and moved to London, England in 1984. She worked in the performing arts in both countries as a senior manager, artistic director, campaigner, actor, director and playwright. Five of her plays have been professionally produced in her native Canada. Most recently, she has written short stories, poetry and flash fiction some of which have been published in anthologies. After over twenty-five years in London, she and her husband Jamie Moore, moved to the Kent coast and settled in Broadstairs.
On moving to Broadstairs, Patricia was encouraged by the late Hilary McBride to join IsleWrite, a group of Thanet based writers. Patricia commented ‘
I am very grateful to Hilary for introducing me to IsleWrite. Writing can be very solitary and it is great to get together with other writers, share our work and receive constructive comments.’  The group meets at 2pm on the third Wednesday of the month at the Broadstairs Library. New members are always welcome.

Praise for past works by Patricia Mahoney:
warm, human and touching' Hamilton Spectator; 
mixes warmth, humour and generosity with perceptive observation' London Free Press;
'a delight' Toronto Star

The stories, set in the 1950s and 60s follow a young Canadian girl, Mary Margaret, and her journey from inquisitive child to young woman - with a stop over in gawky adolescence. 

***** Amazon Reviews -

"A Joy. A beautiful series of short tales which will speak to anyone descended from first or second generation Irish Catholic immigrants and to all of us to remind how we experienced the occasional confusion and varied surprises of our childhood"

“A charming collection of stories, made even more enjoyable by hearing the author's voice on the recording. The music adds to the effect...as good as anything on Radio 4 (and better than some, too)! “

“Very nicely produced with CD for those who do not actually wish to read! Not a large book, but full of interest”

Full of Grace is for sale in the shop at £12.99 and also on Amazon
