Eilis Barrett

Eilís Barrett is 17 years old and hails from Galway, where she shares a home with her mother, three brothers and her dog, Rosie. Eilís and her brothers are home-schooled by their mum, Bernadette, who is devoted to her kids finding their passion in life.

 

From a young age, Eilís had a lot of freedom regarding how she spent her time and was encouraged to do what she was good at. With an insatiable imagination, Eilís watched countless nature documentaries and taught herself to play the piano. But there was one place where she knew she truly belonged … between the pages of a book. And it wasn’t long before her own stories made it onto paper too.

 

At the age of 12, Eilís decided that she was going to take writing seriously. Within two years she had written two full-length novels. At the age of 15, Eilís signed a book deal with Gill Books. Eilís recently spoke at Eason’s inaugural Irish YA convention, and was honoured by Irish Tatler as a Future Maker, one of the young women they believe have the brilliance to shape the next era.
