A bestselling author and editor, Lizzy's published works span many genres, including science fiction, Celtic nonfiction, fantasy, screenplays, and stage plays.
Having grown up in Belfast, her latest novel, A Song of Bullets, is set amidst the worst era of Northern Ireland's 'Troubles' in the 70's, and based on true events in her life.
She's currently working on a sequel, and also a screenplay based on the memoirs of her great uncle, Ernest Blythe, an Irish journalist, managing director of the Abbey Theatre, and politician who served as Minister for Finance in the Irish government.
Lizzy's career is as varied as the genres she writes. Starting out as a library assistant in a Northern Irish rural town, she moved on to study Theatre Arts and Literature in London, and toured the United Kingdom as a professional actress. Roles ranged from the goddess Hecate in Shakespeare's Macbeth to Gustav, the Amazing Dancing Bear in a clown troupe.
"A tale of rebellion, war, and love.
Witty and humorous ...
and devastatingly realistic."
Los Angeles Critic
"Compelling writing that will haunt your mind --
and stir your soul. Don't miss it."
