Stephanie is currently developing another historical novel. She has written several screenplays, has received an option on one and is currently working with a producer on another. She also develops Christian Education materials for her parish, which she intends to publish for wider use at a later date. by photographer Tom Cubbage A mature reader’s adventure into the life of a complicated Saint caught between fear, faith, passion and restraint during the dark days of the crumbling Roman Empire and primitive Ireland.
