Brighid O'Sullivan grew up in Western Massachusetts, a product of her very Irish great grandmother in an area with the largest St. Patrick's Day parade in America, Holyoke, Massachusetts. This great grandmother, also named Brighid, told stories to her grandmother who told stories to her father who told stories to anyone who would listen. At her father's knee she heard of the "good" leprechauns that were his guardian angels. She would later find out these so-called leprechauns were "Americanized" for real Irish leprechauns were anything but helpful. Like her father before her, Brighid has written for newspapers and magazines, namely History Magazine, History Channel magazine, her local paper and she's written 3 books, all Irish. When she is not writing she enjoys entertaining her three grandchildren who are about as cuddly as Irish sheep and exploring the wilds of Ireland especially the pristine magical strands and dangerous cliff-tops. She is a member of Irish American Culture Society Institute and knows more about Irish history and travel than anyone in her home town of Victor New York. She lives with her very supportive husband, often a grand child or two plus the neighbors on occasion and three gold-fish.
