Deirdre O’Dare celebrates her Celtic heritage by turning an Irish gift for gab into romantic tales full of imagination, mysticism and adventure. Discovering the wonder of words early in childhood, Deirdre always wanted to be an author and worked toward this dream most of her life. Since everything she wrote seemed to turn into a love story, she decided to make romance her niche but many of her stories have at least a hint of paranormal woven through them as well. She harkens back to the legacy of the prehistoric Celtic people who honored the Mother Goddess for Her gifts of Love and Desire. Giving voice to these traditions, Deirdre portrays the physical side of romantic love as she feels The Mother meant it to be—joyous, open, and full of wonder and delight. For those who prefer milder or less explicit brand of romance, she writes these as Gwynn Morgan, mostly as longer romantic adventure novels.
Deirdre, a long-term resident of the southwest, sets most of her contemporary tales there but some take place in more exotic or fanciful locales. After many years in Arizona and a couple of sojourns in Colorado and California, she now resides in Alamogordo, NM, a corner of the high desert region she loves. A self-styled Renaissance woman, Deirdre has a thousand interests and avocations, but writing is her first and one true love. An avid reader herself, she also enjoys listening to New Age and ethnic, especially Celtic, music, doing handcrafts, and exploring and photographing the remote corners of her favorite states in her red pickup with her dogs and various friends.
