cropped-imag3567_1_1.jpgI’m Niamh Garvey, and I love all things to do with books; from reading them, to writing them, and even to smelling them. Except for really boring books… I don’t even smell those.

I write stories for children and young adults, plus poetry for adults. This blog is mostly about writing, and the challenges and joys that being an emerging writer brings.

I live in Cork, Ireland, with my husband and 2 daughters who have inherited my love of stories (I like to pretend that they had a choice in the matter). I think stories are the best way to discover the world, and possibly the only place children should be encouraged to get lost in.

If you are a like-minded writer, or reader, please feel free to get in touch.
