A.L Walsh was born in Cork (last century). She studied, worked, lived there until deciding to emigrate to Australia, choosing Sydney as her second home. Or her third, for Spain is also a country dear to her heart. She is fluent in Spanish, speaks some French, a little Irish and lots of English. Fiction has become her favorite way of communicating about the problems of the world. She likes to create strong characters who strive to make their way through challenges by working together to solve mysteries, have adventures and develop relationships. Her stories try to be uplifting, emphasizing the power of the individual, the wing of a butterfly, to kick up a storm.
