About DrAndMrsRock

Mrs Rock, aka Kirsty


I’m British (half English, half Scottish), formerly a geophysicist and now novice writer and stay-at-home mum. I enjoy yoga, surfing and snowboarding, but am more likely to be found cooking, reading kids’ stories or tackling the school run on skateboard. I blog about kids, ex-pat life and writing.

Dr Rock, aka Niall


Niall is Irish and works as VP for an oil company. He enjoys rugby, diving and skiing and likes making up silly songs and teaching his children to say “arse” in an Irish accent.



Éila was born in Texas in 2006. She’s very outgoing and loves playing with her friends. She is best mates with everyone, enthusiastic about anything new and extremely determined and competitive. She likes to dress up as a princess.



Cian was born in Texas in 2008 and is too cute for his own good. He’s not as shy as he pretends to be. He loves riding his scooter at great speed and playing with his friends. He’s great at sharing and remembering names.
