Write, Edit, Repeat. I love to write, feel it's something that I've been imbued with. The stories are fed to me and until I have them written out, only then can I feel utter satisfaction. And then the next idea comes along. My dream is to be able to write full time for six months, to have rent paid and to just sit and write every single day. And then...
My name is Paula Tully and I’m from Dublin. I have a Masters in American Literature and a BA in English and Art History, both from UCD. My novella, Her Rebel Self, is inspired by the 100 year old precious diaries of my friend’s close family relative who lived through Ireland’s deeply turbulent revolutionary history last century. The book is made up of a series of fictionally reimagined diary entries....

Rachael started writing short stories because she did a Creative Writing Course on a whim. She is firmly outside her comfort zone but, strangely, enjoying it! When she isn’t writing (which usually means staring at a computer screen), she tolerates working to earn money and dreams of living a life free to pursue her dreams, once she figures out what they are. She has a cat.
I'm an aspiring writer from Dublin with a Masters in Creative Writing, and not sure what to do with it. I write about whatever comes into my head, but would ultimately love to write in the mystery/thriller genre. Although I do love a good re-write of a fairy tale.

I am a writer from the inside out. It grew in me and came out organically. I remember having one of my essays read out in class once, when I was in secondary school. I remember thinking...maybe? Years later, when I was working as an academic, my writer's spirit forced its way out of me. I've been writing ever since.
