About me

Occupation 'Alternative' medical practitioner
Location Dublin, Ireland
Introduction I'm Madeline Ann, and my day job is as a homeopath/ hypnotherapist/Bowen technique therapist, and also I do womens' medicine. But I really like writing and generally playing with words. Have been writing on and off for "more years than I care to remember" as we say in Dublin, but a medical training is a great way to stifle that sort of creativity so I only got back into it properly in the last 8 years or so, when George, my definitely better half put a line through Mondays in my appointment book and said 'you are writing on Mondays and getting that book Finished'. So I did, and here I am! I am a member of the 'Dalkey Writers' Workshop', 16 writers who meet fortnightly to read and critique each other's work. In November 2011 we published 'Circle Time', an anthology of our work, which contains five of my pieces, three poems and two in prose.
Interests writing, reading, amateur drama, theatre, papercrafting, change ringing.
Favorite Movies Birdcage and Dead Poets' Society, not because they share the main actor...
Favorite Music not into music really, but quite like jazz
Favorite Books too many to list, but all fiction. 'A Fine Balance' by Rohinton Mistry was uplifting.
