About my work:
I’m an avid reader of New Age books, but my biggest source of inspiration was probably the landscape and folklore of Ireland. Being there and absorbing the sheer beauty of the locations I depict in the book is what drove so much of the story. (see inspiration pictures on the right)
I also drew on real-life people. Three of the witches in the story are historical figures, with legends and haunting stories behind them that were far too intriguing and devastating not to write about.
What do my readers (and I) love most about my book?
That it's a story of self-discovery; how it subtly brings to light real-world issues; the fact that any person of any age can enjoy it—because it’s not just about the teens. But most of all, the fact that it forces readers to journey across Ireland in the most magical way possible.
