Hi there and welcome to my blog, OldVictorianQuill.
My name is Sorcha O’Dowd, and I’m a writer, bookseller and book-blogger, who was born into the wrong century. I’m currently hard at work on a number of projects; an historical romance novel entitled In That Field of Poppies, which was conjured up in the recesses of my mind during NaNoWriMo 2012, and a collection of fairy tale retellings.
In my down-time I am an avid reader. I adore delving into the nitty gritty of a book, a habit that developed many years ago from my time as a Psychology Undergraduate and from my MA in Creative Writing. I aim to write constructive and in-depth reviews that really get to the heart of a story.
I also have a fondness for writing a little bit of character driven fanfiction, mostly focusing on introspective and reflective pieces that are inspired from less well-known characters from my favourite fiction series.
As well as working as an expert bookseller at Waterstones, I am a cat mum to Captain Jack, who demands affection, tickles and needs constant supervision due to his mischevious nature.
I do still take Review requests, however due to a hectic work schedule, and being a sufferer of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME), I cannot give assurance of a quick read and review, but will do my best to have your book read and reviewed as soon as I am able.
