Writer, mom, real-food foodie, reckless gardener and wannabe spy.

Descended of pirates and revolutionaries, I am a lover and student of all things Irish. Born in the States, I am a dual US/Irish citizen, and studied history and politics at University College, Dublin – although, at the time, I seriously considered switching to law, if only so I could attend lectures at the castle on campus.

I live in the American Midwest with my son, two cats and a pesky character in my head named D (but you can call him Dubh).

Check out my books here on Amazon.


It started with a few snarky notes in the margin of a manuscript and turned into a blog full of nerdy pop culture and flash fiction. It has since turned into an Author page, with updates, appendices and all-around interesting information on the World of the Changelings.


The D/A Dialogues – What are they?

The D/A Dialogues: Exploring the sometimes-fractious relationship between an author and the character in her head as they go about writing a book together.

D: The Druid, also known as Dubh an Súile mac Alasdair. D is a 1300 year-old Pict who took up residence in A’s mind over 13 years ago. He is a Druid, a warrior-prince and a time traveler. He also impersonates a god from time to time, when it suits his purposes.

A: The author, also known as Katie Sullivan. A has been sitting on D’s story for over 13 years. Fed up with his snarky comments in the back of her mind, A is determined to redraft his chronicle, and make it resemble something readable – timey-wimey plot holes notwithstanding.
