I’m Sinéad O’Flanagan, I’m twenty-four and I’m a midwife. I came here to Chicago last year. It was Wednesday 15th July 1925. I will never forget that day, because as I enter the States, I could have as well been slapped onto the moon. Nothing here looks, smells or feels as it did in the village…

30 Days NaNoWriMo Meme - Day 18 - Who is the antagonist in your novel? What drives their actions?
My antagonist is Justin Brailsfield, Adam’s older brother. I had (I’m still having) a great time writing Justin, because he’s a character with a great arc, who’s going to change a lot in the course of the…
30 Days NaNoWriMo Meme - Day 15 - Do any of your characters have a disability or mental illness? If so, how does that affect their development throughout your story?
