About me

Who am I? well, I write novels, poems, articles and short stories. My first full length novel “The Moon’s Complexion”, was published in 2005. Find it on www.goldenford.co.uk or www.ireneblack.co.uk or www.amazon.co.uk My second novel ‘Darshan’ is now completed and available to purchase. I graduated with a pychology degree. I worked as a research psychologist in England, in Australia at Melbourne University and in New York, where I worked on the Apollo Space Project (mainly doing unbelievably ghastly things to unsuspecting volunteers!). After my return to England I began to teach, ultimately becoming Head of Modern Languages at a large comprehensive school in Surrey (glutton for punishment, that’s me!) In 1999 a spinal injury forced me to give up this post (oh, what a pity!), giving me back my life and enabling me to concentrate on my writing . In 2006 I completed an MA research degree in South Indian Temple art and architecture. My ‘specialist subject’ is a group of gorgeous 12th and 13th century temples in Southern Karnataka, an area I have got to know well over the last 15 years or so.
