Lora O'Brien has been a published freelance writer from the tender age of 23, and an author since she was 26. That is longer ago than she likes to think about. Her books and articles span a range of topics, from Land Rovers to tattooing, but she always comes back to Irish heritage and spirituality. She co-organises Ireland's national festival of magic and spirituality, F ile Dra ochta, and is a guardian at the Celtic royal capital of the West, Rathcroghan (Cruachan, home of Queen Maeve). She now has six more years' experience in daily tourism management and marketing, with community development a strong theme, and is putting this to good use through a new freelance enterprise, Commercial Writing Ireland; supporting business development and growth through professional writing input. Training and consultation options are also available. Lora lives in Roscommon, Ireland (the county to put a smile on your face and a story to take home), with her three wonderful children, and an incredibly patient partner who supports every mad notion that actually makes sense, while summarily dismissing the ones that really don't. Useful. (Here follows the obligatory 'pets' listing of the author bio)... and a dog and a cat and a snake. Find the author website at www.LoraOBrien.com, everything else is linked from there.
