Siobhán Bunni, best selling author of Dark Mirrors will read from her novel Blood and Water. About the author: Siobháin was born in Baghdad in 1968 to her Irish mother and Iraqi father. She was educated by the Benedictine Nuns at Kylemore Abbey, Connemara and went on to graduate from the College of Marketing & Design in 1992. Writing became an accidental passion some ten years later and has remained such ever since. Juggling her writing with raising her three children while managing a full time career is a challenge in itself but, as Siobhain says, “Writing is the instrument that maintains a perception of control and keeps the wheels of my routine well oiled.” Siobháin lives in Malahide, Co. Dublin with her three children
