Valinora Troy has been writing since she could read, if not beforehand! Her first start, started at the age of six, featured a girl finding a magic diamond. It took her all summer to write the first few pages. Since then, she has written many stories, both short and full length novels. The magic diamond, however, continued to call to her, and will finally be published in November 2021. The story has changed greatly since she was six – but the diamond, the five children, the canoe, and the Rock of Diamonds insisted on staying.
Valinora Troy comes from a family of writers and artists. She holds a MA in Creative Writing (Children’s & Young Adults), and lives in Ireland.
You can find her in Twitter @ValinoraW where she tweets about books, writing and her devoted writer’s dog.
