Celtic Influence

If you’ve read my bio, you’ll have read this:

Elaina lives in magical Ireland after leaving the surrounds of magical Table Mountain at the southern tip of Africa. Having lived in both Ireland and New Zealand, she now realises Ireland’s mists are close to perfection. When writing she puts into words her travels and dreams, because she believes there is inspiration in even the most outrageous tale.

… and:

Ireland’s ancient past has influenced her writing, gifting her work a Celtic twist, while the majesty of New Zealand has led her to mountaintops and extraordinary vistas. The vibrancy of Africa has had much to do with the inspirational side of Elaina’s work. The colours and diversity of nature itself fires her imagination.

Emphasis here, for this post, is Ireland and Celtic, because as St Patrick’s Day weekend approaches, the world is getting its Irish on!


Yes, indeed, as it states above, there is a decided Celtic element to my stories, from the Lore series through other standalone novels. You might have noticed that many images used to showcase the Lore settings are in fact of Ireland (and Scotland).

Soooo … if you’re feeling a bit of the luck of the Irish overcome you, then get yourself a copy of The Infinity Mantle to start your journey into lands green and misty, and magical and mysterious!
