ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ireland Gill is now a best-selling author, and has spent well over a decade preparing the story line for her first Urban Fantasy series: Soldier of Light Chronicles. It was originally created back around 2001 with intention to be a graphic comic book, but instead turned into a full length novel....and just kept growing. Having experienced the sudden loss of her father as a child, Ireland's fascination with the idea of the afterlife grew along with her imagination throughout her adulthood, which further inspired memorable characters whose stories had to be told.
Having been diagnosed with MS on Friday the 13th of September, 2013, Ireland decided she would no longer sit on already-written story. Eleven months later, "Negative Zero" (self-published) is not only the first book of her book series, but also her debut novel which hit Amazon as of August, 2014. The second book, Absolute Zero, was published just one year later. (the rest of the series is on its way! But a REBOOT of the series was necessary. New covers and new blurbs have been created, and the first reboot published in July, 2019.
Both Negative Zero and Absolute Zero were accepted by Library Journal into their curated system and their Self-e Selection. Ireland has since been named a Self-e Ambassador for Library Journal and Biblioboard. She has been a featured author on panels at a few events, including Indie Author Day 2016. Ireland is a happily-married early bird and night-owl whose further inspiration comes from her husband, three daughters, and lots and lots of music - particularly the band RED.
In her free time, she does acrylic painting and plays piano, but especially loves finding new hiking trails with her family. Oh, and one more thing - she adores llamas, alpacas and gargoyles.
