Caroline Barry believes studying Art History at college is what gave her an interest in storytelling. She has had two young adult novels published in Ireland. After starting her career in Arts Administration she moved into teaching creative writing, designing and delivering creative writing modules for several county councils around the country. She has been a writer-in-residence and is currently living in the midlands with her husband Neil Richardson (also a writer). Outside of writing she has studied and practiced yoga for fourteen years and is keenly interested in the esoteric. The Dolocheris her first foray into adult fiction inspired by a little known Dublin ghost story.
