Orna Ní Choileáin guest-blog on writing.ie 2 March 2017
Orna Ní Choileáin has recently put together a guest-blog for writing.ie, in which she speaks about the writing process and the difficulties involved in writing for young readers.
I realised that there was a lack of books in the genre of fantasy in Irish, and I wanted to fill that gap. Having decided I would be writing a vampire story, I wanted it to be different from what was already available. There were many books at the time that were set solely in the classroom; young people spend enough time at school, I didn’t think my stories should revolve entirely around the school setting!
