About the author

Ciara Ballintyne

I grew up on a steady diet of adult epic fantasy from the age of nine, leaving me with a rather confused outlook on life – I believe the good guys should always win, but I know they often don’t. I am an oxymoron; an idealistic cynic.

I began my first attempts at the craft of writing in 1992. After writing far more failed epic stories than shorts, this culminated in the publication of my debut work, Confronting the Demon, in 2013. My first book published with Evolved Publishing is In the Company of the Dead.

I hold degrees in law and accounting, and I am a practising financial services lawyer. In my spare time, I speculate about taking over the world – how hard can it really be? If I could be anything, I’d choose a dragon, but if I am honest I share more in common with Dr. Gregory House of House M.D. – both the good and the bad. I am a browncoat, a saltgunner, a Whedonite, a Sherlockian, a Ringer and a Whovian… OK, most major geek fandoms. My alignment is chaotic good. I am an INTJ.

I live in Sydney, Australia, with my husband, my two daughters, and a growing menagerie of animals that unfortunately includes no dragons.
