Penny takes time out of her hectic writing and business schedule to battle the wilds of the Atlantic around her coastal-based home in the northwest of Ireland.

Penny is at her happiest when walking her trusty sheepdog. She also succumbs to the local gin, the odd hot whiskey, and has fallen passionately in love with her own rugged, Irish scuba diver.
