About the Author
O.R. Melling didn’t plan to be a writer; in fact, she wanted to become Canada’s first female prime minister. Before getting her first book published after many rejections, Melling worked as a barmaid, a bank teller, and a secretary. She spent a month in law school, and did a short stint in the Canadian Armed Forces. While trying her hand at all of these occupations, she completed her MA at the University of Toronto in Mediaeval Irish History and Celtic Studies. O.R. Melling currently writes, lectures, and does film work in Ireland, where she lives.
