Award-winning author Bev Irwin began her writing career at the tender age of eight with the publication of her poem about daffodils. She continued to write poetry for many years while she became a registered nurse, married, had three children, and worked in several hospitals and several areas of nursing.
She has always been an avid reader. When an injury gave her the time to delve into writing, she began her first novel, pausing to write several children’s books. Now she writes mystery, thrillers, adventure, paranormal for adults and young adult. She loves to add a touch of medical, either emotional or physical, to her novels. She enjoys attending writing conferences and meeting other writers and fans.
