Biography

Caroline graduated with a First Class Honours MA in Creative Writing from UCD. She is an Irish Times best selling author with Poolbeg Press and is represented by Trace Literary Agency- USA. Her first book “The Ghosts of Magnificent Children” was released in October 2016.

Caroline grew up in a Victorian House in the North West of England. As an only child Caroline spent her days reading books and writing fantastical stories.

When Caroline got older she moved to the South East of Ireland and strongly believes that it is the most magical place on earth.

Her house is nestled beneath the Blackstairs Mountains. But be warned if you ever go there you must tread carefully. The mountains resemble sleeping giants and legend has it that the giants might wake up someday. If you ever find yourself in this predicament, please do not fear as you are close to the oldest lighthouse in the world and a medieval castle so there are plenty of places to hide.
