About Evelyn Byrne:
I was born in Dublin, Ireland, immigrated to the United States at the age of two, and grew up in Chicago. I spent seven years in Tucson, Arizona and for the last twenty I have resided in East Texas. I started writing about eight years ago while taking care of my elderly parents.
I travel to Ireland to visit friends and family almost yearly. As I loved reading paranormal romances, I began researching Irish mythology based around Newgrange, which in itself intrigued me. When I started writing, I instinctively gravitated toward Irish mythology.
Most writers portrayed as the Tuatha Dé Danann as fey. I decided to bring them into the same light as some of my favorite authors did with vampires and wares. So now, we have vamps, wares, and fey all living in our neighborhoods and don’t even know it.
The Magic from Within won 1st place in the East Texas Writers Association Writing Contest in 2006 and 3rd place in 2007 with the East Texas Writers Guild. Since then it has undergone a few changes including its name to Unknown Magic.
