Mary Finn

  • 0 stars across 4 books
    Mary Finn is Irish and lives in Dublin. She used to be a journalist but is now a parliamentary reporter - a very different job - in the Oireachtas, or Irish houses of parliament. Although she is very fond of the eighteenth century, and has set two books in that period - Anila's Journey and Horse Girl - the reason is not the clothes, the swords or even the horses, but the feisty characters who demand that their stories be told. She thinks in pictures but can't draw so words must do the job instead.
