Walking with Juno – one woman’s journey to a book deal
How does it take ten years to finish a book? How many walks did Miriam Mulcahy take with her dog Juno for those years? How many problems did she unravel and untangle as she and Juno walked across the Curragh, through woods and up mountains?
Published in August, Miriam Mulcahy’s memoir ‘This is my Sea’ is about death, grieving and how to survive it. Over the course of seven difficult years Miriam Mulcahy lost her mother, father and sister, each grief threatening to drown her.
Join Miriam Mulcahy for ‘Walking With Juno’ as she shares her journey to a book deal. Believing in the power of her story and refusing to give up, she overcame many rejections from literary agents, finally securing a publishing deal and an agent in the same week.
Hear about the best of relationships - between Miriam and Juno - and how on her worst days and darkest nights, the steadfast love of a tiny, beautiful, loyal dog pulled her through.
