I grew up in Dublin, Ireland with a Bavarian mother and Irish father. My mother died when I was 17 in a tragic accident but my father is still alive and well. I moved to Italy when I was 21 for work and have lived there ever since. My book focusses on the many varieties found in diverse cultures and other dramatic events.
The Dangerous Miles is an autobiographical journey through the life of the ultimately Irish Sabine Mara O'Flynn. The story leaps from humourous asides in North Dublin, charming bucolic strolls through Bavaria, and gritty retelling of the grinding reality of Italy. Sabine retains her humour and warmth throughout, and her humanity shines even in the darkest pages.
