Jude McLean Author


I'm an American of Irish descent. I never thought I would need to say that until a reader sent me a message asking what the weather was like in Ireland. I said, "Let me Google that for you." LOL. As I was saying, I hold a deep-rooted affinity to Ireland. So it was only natural that it be the setting of my books. Ireland has tattooed itself on my soul. It’s my second home. I can’t be there as much as I would like. This way, I can be there as often as I wish and bring my readers along for the ride.


In short, I let it rip and love every moment of it!





"Jude's vivid imagery transports you to the beautiful Emerald Isle. You can practically see the windswept cliffs, feel the clover and moss under your feet, and sense the magic in the air. What follows is breathtaking romance, passion, humour, mystery, heartbreak, hope, and above all, love. In no time you will catch yourself cheering on the characters in their triumphs, commiserating with their pain and buoyed by their love and humanness." - Lacy M.
