The Blog

Reviews, Resources, and Ramblings

Hey there! Welcome to  Ghost Light Publishing – The Blog.

I’m L.C. Ireland. 

I’m an author, playwright, and educator. Writing is a huge part of my life. I work with hundreds of students each year as an Arts Specialist and language arts consultant. I’ve written several plays for kids and I published my first novel last year. (Hooray!)

But before all that, I was a reader. 

This blog is my way of getting back in touch with the hobby that started it all. I will also use this space to share useful information and resources for other indie authors. It will also be my little corner of the internet (does the internet have corners?) to share my thoughts and feelings about anything that might be on my mind.

Cover Reveal! Follow the Music
