Aedamar’s first career was as a successful barrister practising in Dublin between 1991 and 2003. She chose to become a stay at home mother after the birth of her second child. During these years at home with her children she re-discovered her love of creative writing and wrote many beautiful stories for their bedtime reading. She also wrote freelance for The Gloss Magazine. This hobby turned into a passion and Aedamar began to attend creative writing courses all over the city and country, gaining a Diploma in Picture Book Writing along the way.
