About meAnnette Dunlea is a full time female writer. She has a unique humorous voice. She is an ex-teacher, bookseller and librarian. She is a past postgraduate of University College Cork and Aberystwyth University, Wales. She has three university degrees and has numerous computer qualifications. She is small at five foot two inches with long blonde hair, fair skin and blue eyes. She is one of five children with two sisters and two brothers, all live in Ireland. She has a funny and vibrant personality. She loves to read all genres of fiction and researches all her own material and reads a lot almost like a professional reader. She writes from 6pm teatime until 4 am the following morning. She sleeps until 2 pm every day and then does her administrative work by day. She has written 2 novels and an anthology of poetry and is currently working on her third novel. It is called Cry of the Quiet, a coming of age tale about growing up in an orphanage. Her writing records present and past days of Ireland in fictional settings with interesting characters and plots with twists and turns. Her poetry is factual, humorous and rhymes. Her philosophy is to entertain, amuse but never to bore or misinform. This is the consequence of years as a teacher. She writes contemporary Irish fiction.
