Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Monday, 10 December 2018 is O. R. Melling.
O.R. Melling, also known as G.V. Whelan, is an author of several fantasy novels. Melling's novels are aimed at both adults and young adults and contain stories mostly written around Irish and Celtic folklore, faeries in particular.
Melling was born in Ireland and was brought up in Toronto, Ontario with seven sisters and two brothers. She attended Loretto College School. When she was 18 years old she hitched-hiked across Canada and through California. Melling travelled extensively in her youth, straying as far from Toronto as Malaysia and northern Borneo.
With a B.A. in philosophy and Celtic Studies from Trinity College in the University of Toronto and an M.A. in Mediaeval History, Melling has written film scripts, papers and become a literary critic under her real name, G.V. Whelan.
Currently living in her hometown of Bray, County Wicklow, Melling is still writing and has a daughter, Findabhair.
Many of Melling's books have been translated into German, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Slovenian and Czech.
