About the Author

Molly Mahoney Matthews grew up dreaming of becoming anything but a writer, so this book is a surprise and a career pivot. She spent many years as business woman, built a company, and to encourage other entrepreneurs, decided to write a book: Job-IQ: How to Find a Job, Create a Career, Build a Business. While working on the manuscript, she joined a writer's group. Everyone else was writing fiction and, as a lark, Molly experimented writing a few pages of what would become Irish Luck, Chinese Medicine. She discovered she loved channeling stories from her characters. Now, they won't stop talking! She is currently working on a prequel, Chinese Luck, and a sequel, Irish Medicine.
