In the first grade Irene wished so hard to become a magical creature that she got a headache. Still inexplicably human today, Irene has turned her attentions to other-worldly situations in her writing.
Her novel From Light to Dark is a high fantasy that features a Romeo and Juliet theme. In it, two teens from opposing worlds come together to resolve the conflicts of their ancestors. For the release of that novel, Irene also wrote and produced a transmedia event called Creepy Luny Inn's Radio Adventure Show, aka Myth of the Seeker
