Author Bio

Belinda has been writing creatively since before she learned cursive or was allowed to use a pen. Her first writing success was a copy of The Snow Queen, awarded for ‘creative expression’ when she was five. A similar award, at age ten – this time a copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Adventures of Tom Bombadil – set her on the path of exploring literary fantasy and myth. Despite her love of literature and of folklore and mythology, she did not study English at university, but instead earned a degree in Theology and Religious Studies from Bristol (England), and a post-graduate diploma in Applied Spirituality from Milltown Institute, Dublin. Her other interests include Classical history, Mediaeval cooking, animals and the natural world – all of which inform her writing. Her writing career has included time with a theatre-in-education company, work with a local authority arts council, facilitating creative writing workshops, freelance journalism, copy-writing and some radio work.
