Deirdre Riordan Hall is the author of the new adult contemporary novel, To the Sea.

Deirdre studied at George Washington University. She enjoys writing, reading, surfing, and yoga. One of the best things about those activities is they're all done barefoot. Although she loves shoes, she doesn't like to wear them.

Deirdre writes upper young adult and new adult fiction. She spends her days with her family, at the custom-made desk her husband crafted—writing (what else?) or seaside, pretending she's a mermaid.

“The most important thing in all human relationships is conversation, but people don’t talk anymore, they don’t sit down to talk and listen. They go to the theater, the cinema, watch television, listen to the radio, read books, but they almost never talk. If we want to change the world, we have to go back to a time when warriors would gather around a fire and tell stories.”
Paulo Coelho

“When you love someone, you’re capable of more than you know.”
Faith Sullivan, Hold Me Tight

Sarah Williams

“She wondered what life would be like if there was always an arm around her shoulder and if there was a back that welcomed her hug all the time.”
Deirdre Riordan Hall, In the Desert

“Together, they at once dodged those parts of themselves and magnified them, making for enigmatic harmony and anarchy.”
