Welcome to the Worrywart's Corner. I hope what you read on these pages will help and inspire you. I'll really try to keep it current, but don't worry if I neglect my duties every once in a while, as I've deadlines that must come first if I want to keep the cats fed and the bill-collector away from my door. For those who may not know me, here's a bit of my backstory: I'm an internationally-published author of over 170 children’s and adult trade titles with close to two million books in print. My books reflect two main passions, God and cats, and include such titles as The Worrywart’s Prayer Book, The Dreamy, Fishy, Happy Bible Storybook, The Ten Commandments for Little Ones, as well as Smelly Feet Sandwich and Other Silly Poems; Purr More, Hiss Less: Heavenly Lessons I Learned from My Cat; The Joy of Being Single and Cat Confessions: A Kitty-Come-Clean Tell-All Book.
Among other places, my work has been featured in The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, The Irish Independent News, The Hartford Courant, The Washington Post, and The Los Angeles Times.
I live, write, and worry in Connecticut with my husband, Desmond Finbarr Nolan, and our three feline children, Sinead, McDuff, and Angela.
