Bannie McPartlin lives in an ancient city once inhabited by Vikings and now Dublin people. She's married to Donal, a drummer, guitar and piano player. He's a man of many noises. Together they have four dogs: Trudy, Bonzo, Misty and Doris. Bannie has written fiction for adults for over ten years under the name Anna, but the kids she loves in her life call her Bannie so the name change is for them.
