Ellie O’Neill took the long way round.
She sold spider catchers in Sydney, flipped burgers in Dublin and worked in advertising in London. All the while, she had that niggling feeling, that she had stories to tell. So, at thirty-something, she made the brave leap and moved back in with her parents to get the job done. Swopping the dizzy disco lights of London for their suburban Dublin house, she scribbled away knowing that there was something about Irish fairies she needed to share with the world. Her first novel Reluctantly Charmed was born.
Then most unexpectedly Ellie fell madly in love. The only catch, he lived in Australia. True to form she couldn’t ignore the magic and followed her heart to Oz for what was supposed to be a long holiday.

I have another book that came out at the end of last year The Enchanted Island, and I am writing at the moment but I did just have a baby a few months ago, so I am knee deep in nappies and not getting nearly enough time to work, but I'll catch up soon. Thanks for getting in touch and happy reading. (less)

The idea for Reluctantly Charmed came from stories my Granny used to tell me about the fairies and how strongly she believed in them. I have always thought her belief was really special. I use my own background a lot in my stories and in all of the characters I create. I just stretch the truth a little bit. I couldn't imagine not writing, as difficult as it is, it's ultimately all I want to do!

Great fun, brilliantly written novel. I laughed out loud many many times. I read this book with a new born in my arms and it was the perfect companion for late sleepless nights. Looking forward to whatever Georgia Madden produces next.

“Virgin Mary was said to have appeared there. I was pretty sure she’d had her hands joined in prayer and was crying, presumably over the inhumanity of it all, and not due to sunscreen in the eye or a loose eyelash.”
