About Meg McNulty



When I was a little girl, there was one thing I loved more than marmite on toast and She-Ra, and that was writing stories. Sometime in my teens, stories about lions and unicorns gave way to romances. A love affair was born. 

For twenty years my house was a mess of notebooks and half-baked ideas. None of them completed. 

Then, in 2010 I lost a dear friend and was starkly reminded that we have but one life. I made a resolution: I was going to complete a full length novel or bust. That novel was Serendipity, half fantasy, half historical romance, written in first person and kind of odd. But the important thing was: it was was finished.

Since then I  have completed two historical romances - Merely Players and Boundless as the Sea and one fantasy romance, Soul Mates plus a few practice works along the way.  You can find out all about them at Meg McNulty Author

I learnt from a seagull by the name of Jonathan Livingston. The reason "to live - to learn, to discover, to be free!"

Thank you - I just popped over to your blog, it's wonderful. I especially like the 'my religion' bit - so with you!

In 1st grade, my teacher accused me of making up the word "paleontologist" when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. She made me write it on the board to prove I wasn't lying.

I know what you mean about starting again.
