Originally from the south of England, Nina Oram lives in County Roscommon with her Irish partner and a cheeky black cat called Cara. Inspired by the West of Ireland’s stunning landscape, she has fulfilled her childhood dream of wanting to write. Having previously had short stories published in Ireland, UK and the US, the first book in her YA Fantasy Trilogy ,”The Joining” was published in August 2019. Fascinated by the darkness, wherever she finds it, her stories explore the idea that ancient myths and legends are still with us, lying largely undetected beneath the science and veneer of the modern world. With books two and three of “The Carrowkeel Series” out in 2020, she is currently working on a short story anthology and her first adult, dark fantasy novel, “The Crooked God”.
