Meg Grehan is a young writer originally from County Louth but now hiding away in Donegal in the northwest of Ireland, with a very ginger girlfriend, an even more ginger dog and an undisclosed number of cats (none of whom is ginger). She has written for online newspapers and journals such as The Arcade.

Her first book, The Space Between, a verse novel for the YA audience, won the Eilis Dillon award at the 2018 Children’s Books Ireland awards. She is currently studying Film and likes cake and rain; dislikes going outside – which makes the rain a bit difficult to appreciate to the full.

Her latest book, The Deepest Breath, also in verse, is for a younger age group and, like The Space Between, deals with LGBT issues in a gentle and empathetic way
