About the Author
My name is Tanith McKlane.  I was born in Tupelo, Mississippi in 1966.  I won a poetry contest when I was 9, with a poem called "Dreams".  I wish I could say that I've been writing ever since, but in truth, I have only just rekindled the creative flame.

My father was transferred to England and I finished my education there. After I left University, I went for a short vacation to Paris, and fell in love with the people, the culture, the language and the city-so much so that I got a job and stayed there for nearly five years.

Personal reasons dictated that I should move, and, although I visit often, I am currently living and working  in Northern Ireland.
