Short version:

Writer, reader, blogger, punctuation enthusiast, Tolkienite, fan of Diana Wynne Jones, avid organizer of bookshelves, secretly an otter.

treeiconnew (2)Deborah O’Carroll is a whimsical young writer who loves fantasy, fairytales, anything by J. R. R. Tolkien or Diana Wynne Jones, Celtic music, chocolate, and lists.

As an avid lover of words, her favorite pastimes are reading others’ tales (and reviewing or proofreading them), penning her own, blogging, and other wordy pursuits. You can usually find her typing away, curled up reading a good book, or endlessly rearranging her โ€œlibrary.โ€

She writes mostly fantasy of different types, has finished three novels, a novella, and several short stories, to date, and is currently exploring the road toward publication (and a long and winding road it is…). Her current WIPs are many and varied and keep her busy. (Plot bunnies multiply in droves…)


Grab my button? ๐Ÿ™‚

The Road of a Writer is where she chronicles her writing journey, with a smattering of other bookish things, occasional book reviews, and miscellaneous life tidbits. Posts are weekly-ish, and she loves engaging with commenters and always replies, so don’t be shy!

She also sporadically reviews and obsesses over books on her book blog, The Page Dreamer.

On top of all of this, she has a fondness for The Twelve Dancing Princesses, punctuation (including parentheses and ellipses…), forests, otters, tricorn hats, Scottish accents, the color green, and has a very unfortunate tendency toward referring to herself in the third person.

You can contact her by dropping her a line at deborahocarroll@yahoo.com, leaving a comment anywhere round-about here, or connect with her elsewhere online in these places:
