“We were so honoured and delighted to have Marguerite and her team in our school today to launch her latest novel Kapheus Fire. We even had the privilege of having Marguerite read to us as we all sat around her and listened to her every word!
Thank you, Marguerite for all the lovely compliments you paid our school! We are delighted to have you in our school anytime!”

“People who enjoy myths and legends, as well as Harry Potter fans, would love this book, which is much more mysterious, and a little bit darker than the previous two in the series […] The book has a sense of old mythology to it, with curious druids. I like this because it adds another layer to the story, while keeping the magical feel of the series.”

“Many thanks for your fantastic, energetic and engaging session with our pupils today. You really held their attention so well! You could see how much they were enjoying your story telling.
I gave your book (Kapheus Fire) to the 4th class girl that you referred to. To say that she was beaming is an understatement! She could not believe your act of kindness. She was so thankful.”

I went to a really good sports psychologist in Connacht, Marguerite Tonery. She opened my mindset to the possibility of self-injury as a safety net. There’s almost that need to be wanted. If you’re sitting in the physio room, everyone is asking when you’re going to be back and in a weird way, you can feel wanted from that. It can be a toxic thing.
