Bonnie McKernan is the author of Cliff of the Ruin, a work of historical fiction with a touch of fantasy, tracking the mysterious disappearance of a woman’s husband and the heroic lengths her New York lawyer, a Civil War veteran, will go to help her. When the investigation is shifted to Ireland, answers are found in an ancient castle ruin—along with murder.

Bonnie has had the good fortune to have lived in many parts of the globe, including Europe and Africa, which has afforded her many unique experiences and perspectives from which to draw for writing. Early on, she worked as an advertising executive and later as a freelance copywriter, and when her husband’s work transplanted her to Dublin, Ireland, she immediately fell in love with its unique culture, history, and folklore, ingredients that combined to inform her first novel. She now lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and children, secretly dreaming of her next grand adventure.

Bonnie is a member of RWA, the Historical Novel Society, and the Alliance of Independent Authors.
