Ita Ryan was born in Dublin before the iPad was invented.
In her earlier youth she had to meet people at pre-arranged locations at pre-determined times because no-one had a mobile phone.
She managed to scrape through University without the aid of Google, and became a computer programmer because she was so bored.
She started writing once she could touch-type fast enough.
Now all is well. She has Facebook and Twitter accounts and a Samsung Galaxy SIII.
She is toying with the idea of joining Pinterest, but she's not a very good cook.
