About the author


Ana Mcginley

Ana McGinley loves a good story. This love has supported a long career that began in social work and later moved to writing, reviewing, editing books and websites. She has enough degrees to have been able to hold a teaching job at a university, but prefers the buzz that comes from knowing nothing to becoming competent in an unknown environment. Ana has a longstanding feud with technology and government bureaucracies in all nine countries she has called home.
