Honor is the author of Smarty Girl - Dublin Savage (Simon & Schuster Audio / GemmaMedia 2012)—a fictionalized version of her childhood in Ireland. Currently working on a music / theatre collaboration with composer / performer Corey Dargel, she lives in Jackson Heights. Here’s a bit of her work:

Of this fambilly that is mine, how much is me? And how much is them I ask you? How much is me and how much is them? All the time twisting. They’re in there. In my mind and twisting. Every thraneen of thought, each perception. Till I’m squandered in their twisting. Till alls I see is them. And alls I am is them. I’m not standing here under cover the witch-elm tree. Swaying under a great sky in the death of night on Crackskull Row. No, I’m not peeping in on my dear oul Ma. I’m back there in the dark with the dead and the half dead and them lethal ones will never go under. No, I’m lost to that January in `66, when me Da streeled the roads and me Ma still had the goldy hair. And was loved. And was dearer than life.

—from Crackskull Row
