Sharon Blackie



Sharon is a writer, storyweaver and psychologist, and co-editor of EarthLines Magazine. Her work is focused on exploring and deepening our relationship with the land and with place through the transforming power of myth, story and other expressive arts. Her first novel, The Long Delirious Burning Blue, was described by the Independent on Sunday as ‘Hugely potent’ and by The Scotsman as ‘powerful (reminiscent of The English Patient), filmic, and achieving the kind of symmetry that novels often aspire to, but rarely reach.’ Her new work of nonfiction, If Women Rose Rooted, will be published in March 2016. She lives in the hills of Donegal, in a small stone riverside cottage by a waterfall in a wood.
