- Malachy Doyle
Malachy Doyle was born in Northern Ireland and much of his inspiration comes from the Irish folktales told to him as a child by his mother. He began his career as a children's writer in 1996 and met with immediate success. His work has gathered critical acclaim from all quarters and he passionately believes that you are never too young, too old, or too wise to enjoy and to learn from these stories. Malachy lives in mid-Wales with his wife Liz and their three teenagers, Naomi, Hannah, and Liam.
