Social Maps and Mental Health

I WOULDN’T CALL IT PROCRASTINATING.

But I really should have finished my next novel at this stage. I’m still applying the final brushstrokes and will announce a release date next week.

In the meantime, I’ve been busy. Honest!

I’ve been working for a startup company, based in the Czech Republic.

Mapotic provide social mapping tools (which are free – YAY!) to help communities form and engage around shared interests.

That could be trainspotters, roller-coaster fanatics, Vegan restaurant lovers, butterfly enthusiasts…basically…whatever your interest is, and as long as it has a location, it can be captured.

You can find out a little more about Mapotic’s mission and if you like what you see, feel free to take it for a test drive and create your first map.


I’ve also been volunteering these past few months for an Irish teenage mental health charity called Aunua Academy.

Recently I was tasked with writing a short story about our mascot, Erin.

Erin is 11 years old and through her eyes, we explore issues affecting teens and ultimately provide support and resources to help those experiencing mental health issues.

If you want to give some Facebook love to either channel, please do!
