Colm Anthony was born and raised in Rossport County Mayo in Ireland and moved to London at an early age.
Colm Anthony's stories are based on old fashioned story telling. Making up bedtime stories for his granddaughter Emily, he decided to publish them. Now his three books are very popular in the U.K. and Ireland.
