Hello and welcome to my Fresh Meat page. This is what I have instead of a Linktree. Below you’ll find my latest columns, interviews, book reviews etc for The Sunday Independent, IMAGE.ie, Lovin Dublin and IMAGE magazine. You’ll also find the latest episodes of the podcasts I co-host. And any other ole shite I find lying around and see fit to bombard you with. XX
What’s it about….?
Ali Jones is hell-bent on achieving her #lifegoals: 10,000 Instagram followers and a win at the upcoming Glossie Influencer Awards. So when she inadvertently leads people to believe she is sporting a baby bump and immediately gains thousands of followers, she realises that the Mummy Influencer wave could be her ticket to Insta-success, even if off-screen it feels like her life is falling apart with what's happening to her beloved dad.
But then Tinder Sam, Ali's one-night-stand, resurfaces and seems determined to take his new role as baby daddy seriously. And falling for Sam is definitely not part of Ali's plan.
Meanwhile, Ireland's biggest influencer (and Ali's idol) Shelly Divine has it all ... at least on paper. But beneath the immaculately curated feed, cracks are appearing. Shelly harbours a secret from her followers and, more importantly, her husband - but who will be the first to discover what she's been hiding?
As the Glossies approach, what will it take for the women realise what's truly important before they lose what matters most?
What’s it like….?
Set in the world of Instagram and with overtones of Sophie Kinsella’s Confessions of a Shopaholic and Dawn O’Porter’s The Cows, Filter This is packed with darkly humorous observations and insights, with its finger firmly on the pulse of our social media culture.

The Creep Dive is hosted by me, Jen O’Dwyer and Cassie Delaney. Every episode we investigate and report on the lesser known details of the bizarre stories that made the headlines. From con artists to encounters with the supernatural, we delve deeper than any normal person has time for. It’s all that shit you wind up reading on a wikipedia deep dive while procrastinating and stressing about important things you’re not doing. We save you the time and every week do the leg work on the internet’s biggest creeps.
