About Joleen

I'm Joleen. I write, therefore I am a writer - that's the way I see it anyway. I like to write all sorts of things, though most of them seem to involve bad things happening to characters, or characters being placed in challenging situations.

In real life I'm actually quite a nice person, I swear! I write horror, fantasy, speculative, literary, poetry...anything that comes to mind and I managed to get down on paper or the screen before the thought vanishes forever really!

I've had a few pieces published over the years. For more details on these, you can click "Publication Credits" above.

As well as writing I love reading, taking pictures, cooking, eating, walks, sunshine, music and travelling.

I'm studying part time for a degree in Sociology and Psychology. Difficult but interesting. I try to avoid the statistics element of both whenever I can (which remarkably is most of the time) but apart from that it's going well.

I'm a mum to be, I'm married, I have a cat and two dogs, I live in Ireland, which is all right most of the time (though you wouldn't think it with the amount of complaining I do about it).

I have strong opinions about a lot of things, like equality and equal rights, free good quality education, religion, idiots and bad drivers. All of which will no doubt pop up in the blog from time to time.

So, thanks for reading, and I hope you visit again!
