About the Author

Debbie is a Mam and a Nana. She lives near our Wishing Tree in Dublin. She owns a little dog called Fudge and walks him daily on the Bull Wall, usually as the sun is coming up, her favourite time of the day.

Debbie has spent the last 25 years working with children and has multiple awards for her work. She knows the value of storytelling for children and, over the many years that she worked with To Children With Love in orphanages, has supplied thousands of books to children far and wide. One of her favourite memories of her orphanage years was sitting with little ones before bedtime with the snow falling outside the window and the children’s sheer delight at hearing their first bedtime story.

She believes magical books should be a vital part of every childhood.
