Eimear was born in Co. Cavan and now lives in the medieval city of Kilkenny with her husband John and two sons. Even as a young child Eimear Lawlor would conjure up stories with their imagination, sharing them with anyone who would listen. They've developed their storytelling and writing quite a bit since then, but the thrill of language and creation they first discovered as a child has never gone away.
She met John in London while she was studying for a BSc. Unfortunately, her middle child Ciara passed away in 2016, who was the inspiration of her writing career. Eimear worked as a teacher for a few years and became a stay-at-home mum after the birth of Ciara. When Ciara was twelve, she told Eimear to do something with her life other than drinking coffee with her friends. She did the NUI Maynooth Creative Writing course in 2014. Her writing has been on The Ryan Tubridy Show, and The Ray D’Arcy Show on RTÉ Radio 1 and her short stories have been published in two anthologies.
This is her debut novel and a work of fiction which was inspired when she read her aunt’s Bureau of Military Statement. Her aunt worked in Dublin for the political party in 1917 that was trying to gain independence from England. Her aunt worked with Michael Collins and Éamon De Valera who she continued to work for after the Civil War as his private secretary.
