About the Author

Anne B. Walsh was telling stories about magic and intrigue from the time she could talk, but it took her twenty years to realize she could make a living at it. Her first novel, historical fantasy "A Widow in Waiting", has its origins in a PBS special which changed her life; her second, semi-traditional fantasy "Homecoming", takes its inspiration from some of her other writing; and her third, soft science fiction "Killdeer", stems from her constant interest in the ways in which the future and the past coincide.Anne lives east of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with her roommate Krystal and their black Labs Buddy and Brando. Sadly, their Cane Corso mastiff, Bruce, passed away in mid-August 2013, and their cats, Poppy and Sesame, who helped inform Anne's first collection of short stories, "Cat Tales", are missing after an accident on Christmas Day. No one ever said life was fair.Anne's parents and siblings live two hours north of her, otherwise known as just far enough away. She has also been writing Harry Potter fan fiction for more than nine years and is known best in that genre as the creator of the "Dangerverse" alternate universe (which inspired "Homecoming").Beyond writing fiction, Anne's preoccupations include reading fiction; singing anywhere that will have her, including her church and local galas; theatre, especially musicals; all forms of cooking; and her family and friends. Within writing fiction, her preoccupations are much the same, meaning most of her stories involve loving families, delicious food, and good music. Consider yourself warned.A number of projects continue to need Anne's attention as she writes her original novels. Among these are the final novel-length work in the Dangerverse, "Surpassing Danger", and the themed fantasy anthologies she co-authors with her friend and fellow author Elizabeth Conall.

Being a fan of Anne's from the Dangerverse (HP Fanfiction), I absolutely had to buy this. It's totally not from the genres I tend to read, but I absolutely loved it and thought the little world she made was amazing. I can't wait for the next installment in the World of Glenscar!

I received this as a review copy from Library Thing, and it was a pleasure. This was a good read. I really enjoyed it. I leaned so much about Irish legend and the culture that the author created. The characters of Eleanor (Noreen) and John (Sean) are so believable. It almost makes me believe in magic! I thought the author did a great research job and her characters are well developed and the narrative flowed so easily. Impressive work.
