About the Author
I was born in Ireland at a time when its rural community was pretty much its own third world. As a result my parents moved to England where I grew up as the ‘quiet one ‘ of six children in a large chaotic household. Like many others I found my own space by writing and reading, and still do. Now that space is filled with the writing of fantasy novels, the amazing work of inspiring authors such as Orson Scott Card and the tingling awareness of novels yet to come.I gained a degree in English literature and have been a lecturer in post-graduate nursing. I have loved my career as a nurse in General Practice specialising in the management of chronic conditions. On a daily basis I am astonished by human endurance, dumfounded by our passion for self-destruction, and ever certain of the basic impetus to care. It is a place where everyday conversation reveals the vital organs of human vulnerability; the veneer of what doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter.
My husband and two children have long supported me in my unsocial writing habits. They built me a real space, a small burrow that catches the morning sun where I continue to explore the world of fantasy, the nebulous dream that sustains hope.
