Ellie OíNeill sold spider catchers in Sydney, flipped burgers in Dublin, and worked in advertising in London, but all the while she had that niggling feeling she had stories to tell. Swapping the dizzy disco lights of London for her parentsí suburban Dublin house, she scribbled away knowing that there was something about Irish fairies she needed to share with the world. Then, most unexpectedly, Ellie fell madly in love. Five years later, Geelong, Australia, is home to Ellie, her Joe, and their fabulous baby. Ellie's debut novel Reluctantly Charmed has just been released.

He has written many books, each as brilliant as the previous, but this was the first one I found, and as with all love stories the first time, is the best.
