About Mary O Sullivan

The Early Years
I was born in Limerick city in Ireland. When I was two years old my parents moved to the seaside town of Crosshaven in Co. Cork. Skirting as it does the expanse of Cork Harbour, Crosshaven was a magic place in which to grow up. Teeming rock pools, towering cliffs and sandy coves instilled in me a life-long love of nature. Flotsam and jetsam thrown up by winter storms stirred my imagination. Where had that one shoe come from? The bottle , the piece of timber , the shard of blue glass? I began to imagine the stories behind the sorry dross abandoned by angry winter seas.

The In Between Bit
I worked as a Laboratory Technician. My hobby, my passion, was writing. Busy with my family and job , I grabbed some moments here and there to write poetry and short stories. I also wrote a general interest column in a local newspaper. My two sons, as children do, grew up and finding that there were less demands on my time ,I joined a creative writing class. It was then , with the encouragement of tutor Vincent McDonald , that the idea of writing a novel took shape. I began to expand on a short story I had written some years previously . It was a shock to discover that enthusiasm and imagination are not enough. For the first time I learned that writing can be very hard work!

And now ---
I have five published novels and a sixth due out early 2011. I write full time now. It is a demanding way of life but one so full of challenge and fulfillment that I cannot imagine a better way to spend my days. No more clock watching! The hours just speed past as I write - and re-write , always in the hope that people will enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
