Aisling is an avid reader and has found the enjoyment of reading to be fulfilling and imaginative. She has read many novels including the Harry Potter series several times and loves the style and imagery of J K Rowling. The imagery from this series formulated in her mind which led to her writing her own short stories. Her ability to generate imagery in her writing shows her talents even at such an early age.

After writing Riptide and receiving such positive feedback, she has started to think about how a sequel might come from this story. She is also writing other short stories on the characters in this story. Aisling is also working on a novel that will be for older readers.

    Enchanting children’s storybook. Aisling’s imagination and storytelling are really exceptional.

  • Simone O’Callaghan

    One of my kid's favourite books. The author's imagination was captured in her elegant writing and the words came to life on the page with the beautiful artwork. We can’t wait to see what adventure follows.

  • Adam

    One of the most imaginative stories I have ever read. A true gem of a children's story. I Highly recommend.
