I am a writer and mother living in rural Ireland. I specialise in a humourous slant thanks to years of reading Wodehouse, Dickens, Pratchett, Brookmyre, and chick-lit galore. My fiction and non-fiction writing has been published internationally and locally in everything from the local paper to anthologies, online media, coffee tins, and glossy magazines in several different countries. I mentor the Ireland North East region in NaNoWriMo. I am currently editing my second chick-lit novel. For more information about my work see www.gracetierney.com.
In what little time I have left after mothering and writing, I read compulsively, garden organically (I grow my own veg and flowers, and have been known to get up at 4am to tend seedlings), crochet (you will find me on Ravelry), bead (mainly wire and bead necklaces, since the age of 10), and I’m a novice dress-maker. There aren’t many crafts I haven’t tried at this point and my house is overflowing with supplies and creations.
I once wrote my own (humourous) obituary – perhaps I should put that here instead of my writing biography – what do you think?
