Columbkill Noonan has an M.S. in Biology, and teaches Anatomy and Physiology at a university in Maryland. An avid history buff, much of her writing, which could be best described as “supernatural historical horror”, combines historical events with elements of paranormal fantasy. Her first novel, Night Woods, is available as an e-book on Amazon.com. She is currently working on her second novel, which was inspired by a trip to Scotland, particularly by the grim castles and spooky underground alleys of Edinburgh. Which makes her story, "The Mislaid Heart", a real departure...
“Use the Nubian embalmer, they said,” he muttered. “Nubian embalmers are cheaper, they said. You can’t afford a Greek embalmer, they said. Everybody’s using the Nubian ones anyway, they said. Stupid Nubian embalmers."
What would you like people to know about you?
That I am terrified of ghosts. I sometimes scare myself when I am writing scary stories, so that is why I really enjoy writing about ghosts who are silly and funny.
When did you begin writing?
I wrote my first story when I was five. It was a about an epic journey taken by a dog who was lost on vacation. The dog took trains, crossed mountains, and sailed across the ocean in order to get home. My mom liked it.
How did you get the idea for your story in Strangely Funny III?
I just randomly became obsessed with Egyptian mythology and began researching it. Once I had done that, I had no choice but to write a story about it.
Is there a genre you haven't written in, but would like to?
I like historical fiction very much. I've been working on an historical fiction novel for a few years now, but it's coming along very, very slowly.
What are you working on next?
It's another humorous story about the Egyptian afterlife, but this time it'll be a novel. I'm already in love with the characters!
What is your favorite writing snack food/drink?
Gum. I chew gum like a madman when I write. I'm actually chewing it now while I write this email.
