About The Author
-

Kunak McGann grew up in Drogheda back in the days when electronic tablets were unheard of (she can still remember the excitement when the family got a ZX Spectrum – Luna Crabs, anyone?) and playing out on the street was the most fun kids could imagine. Eventually, she had to grow up and get a proper job. Now she works in publishing and lives in Kildare with her husband, two lively sons and one chilled-out dog.
