My background, and therefore my writing, is quite eclectic. Growing up in an Irish-speaking Baha’í family gave me a perspective on life that is sensitive to the minority view and I am fascinated by what creates individuality, both in terms of cultural difference and in terms of personality.

Since graduating with an Arts Degree in languages, I have walked a dual path – working in business while continuing to delve into deeper mysteries.  This has led me into South American Shamanism, Indian Tantra and many more diverse areas. All of these, along with a fascination with the otherworldly, colour my writing and I am a regularly to several online spirituality and self-help journals, including Elephant Journal.

I am currently editing two novels and I live, with my partner and three children, in rural Ireland.

You can read Freyas story, The Folklorist’s Daughter, in A Pocketful of Dreams vol. II Europe and Africa. In Folklorist’s Daughter, Freya draws upon experience as a child growing up in 1970s Ireland — a country transitioning into a modern society but losing the richness of its native culture and folklore. She tells the story of a ‘tween’ girl embarrassed at being pulled into the house of an ageing and unknown storyteller, yet fascinated by the opening it provides into the elemental realms.
