While their lives look frantic on Snapchat, exotic on Instagram, and they always seem to be doing something in the public eye, being successful involves more than just an enviable social profile. MELANIE MORRIS meets five of Ireland’s most prolific creative professionals and finds out what makes them tick.

Portraits by Anthony Woods. Still Lifes by Trevor Hart.?

HOBBIES/INTERESTS?

The holy trinity of fitness, nutrition and reading.

WHAT DO YOU USE YOUR PHONE FOR MOST?

Predictably, Snapchat and social media.

WHAT?S MOST IMPORTANT IN A PHONE, AND WHY?

High quality camera, long battery life and buckets of storage for selfies! I couldn’t get over the quality and picture resolution of the Samsung Galaxy S7 – it leaves all the others way at the back of the class.

YOUR PERFECT WEEKEND?

It starts with a serious workout in the gym. Then I’m game for shopping with the girls, followed by drinks, a chilled-out Sunday at a food market, and eating loads of healthy yums!

BEST CHRISTMAS PRESSIE EVER?

A bike from Santa.?It was luminous green, and I loved it.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO FIND UNDER THE TREE?THIS YEAR?

I’d love one of those smart, 4K Ultra HD curved Samsung TVs. Actually, if I had a TV like that, I might never go out again.

WHAT WILL YOU REMEMBER 2016 FOR?

It will be the?year I wrote my first book, Flabyrinth (Gill Books)… and then became a bestselling author – a dream come true!
