Always walking in the shadow of someone. Second daughter, in the shadow of my beloved older sister, Dolores [who is very beautiful]. Piggy in the middle of my two sisters! The baby in the doll's stroller. "Little fat Marie" was one of my nick-names. That was enough to make me succeed to greater heights than I could imagine. Was Secretary to high-profile politician in Dublin, but prefered the stage to the office desk. Made tongues wag in The Hostage with a brilliant performance [note that I am also very humble!]. I have become more open and pragmatic as I get older and wiser as I look back on my life. Now, I sometimes feel like superwoman as I have become more confident about who I am. I spend a lot of time with my creator, which I think makes me feel really strong-minded about social justice, integrity, honesty and openness. I just love being the perfect person inside. I wish I had been a detective, but being a writer is close to perfect for me. Love my family and friends next to God.
