Ellie O’Neill sold spider catchers in Sydney, flipped burgers in Dublin, and worked in advertising in London, but all the while she had that niggling feeling she had stories to tell. Swapping the dizzy disco lights of London for her parents’ suburban Dublin house, she scribbled away knowing that there was something about Irish fairies she needed to share with the world. Then, most unexpectedly, Ellie fell madly in love. Five years later, Geelong, Australia, is home to Ellie, her Joe, and their fabulous baby. Ellie's debut novel Reluctantly Charmed has just been released.
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…. This book is a collection of autobiographical essays, written by a master of self deprecating humour. To call this book hilarious is an understatement, it is thigh slapping, tears rolling down cheeks brilliant. And it is also poignant, dark and insightful. He has written many books, each as brilliant as the previous, but this was the first one I found, and as with all love stories the first time, is the best.
