More About the Author

Christina McKenna, a native of County Derry, Northern Ireland, is a graduate in Fine Arts and English. She loves to travel and write.

Writing books, she says, is a real challenge. It requires much inspiration and self-discipline. It is, however, emotionally and spiritually rewarding in ways she'd never dreamed of before she published her first book, "My Mother Wore a Yellow Dress," in 2004.

This was a memoir of her journey to adulthood, and of the extraordinary people who shared that journey, her dear departed mother in particular. Christina dedicated the book to her.

Her next project took the form of a novel, in her opinion the most difficult type of writing. The genesis of "The Misremembered Man" came to her in a particularly lucid dream -- evidence that, in some cases, dreams do indeed come true!

Contrary to certain press reports, the film rights to "The Misremembered Man" have not been sold.

The sequel, "The Disenchanted Widow," revisits Tailorstown, the setting for the first novel. It was published to great acclaim by Amazon on August 27, 2013.

Fans of "The Misremembered Man" will be pleased to learn that the sequel sees a return of the inimitable Rose McFadden, as well as a couple of minor characters from the same book. It also features an enigmatic parish priest, Father Cassidy, whom Christina based on an individual from her childhood. The situations and occurrences involving Cassidy are also based on actual events.

The paranormal holds tremendous interest for her. This is in part due to the fact that the farmhouse of her childhood was subjected to a prolonged haunting when she was eleven years old. Eventually, an exorcist banished the entity -- but not Christina's abiding curiosity in such matters.

This interest has produced two books so far. The first was entitled, "The Dark Sacrament," which she co-authored with her husband, David M. Kiely. The second is "Ireland's Haunted Women." Both recount recent cases of paranormal activity in Ireland, as seen through the eyes of the haunted and their "deliverers."

Christina is currently working on the third novel in the Tailorstown series. Entitled "The Godforsaken Daughter," it's scheduled for publication in 2015.

She's also updated and revised her 2004 memoir, "My Mother Wore a Yellow Dress," which is now available both as a paperback and a Kindle.

Praise for "My Mother Wore a Yellow Dress":

"There have been many books recalling Irish childhoods published over the last few years, but this one stands out among the rest for the brilliance of the writing".

Irish Emigrant

"Lyrical and elegiac but never sentimental . . . "


Praise for "The Misremembered Man":

"McKenna's ability to create real human drama . . . reminded me of Brian Moore's simply wonderful The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearn."

The Washington Times

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Christina McKenna is a special writer. It was her first book the memoir "My Mother Wore a Yellow Dress than convinced me of the reality of the paranormal and therefore I approached this book with no doubt in my mind that it was thoroughly researched and not sensationalised in any way. This is a frank and detailed account of the reality of paranormal activity in modern Ireland.
