Emma Larkin lives in Kerry in Ireland with her husband and four children. She is the founder of “Emma Larkin Books”. “Izzy’s Magical Soccer Adventure” is her fifth book and is the fourth in the “Izzy” series. The other three books in the series, “Izzy’s Magical Football Adventure”, “Izzy’s Magical Camogie Adventure” and “Izzy’s Magical Christmas Adventure” were published in 2019, 2020 and 2021 respectively. Following on from the success of her “Izzy” series, Emma signed with O’Brien Press in 2022 to write a Gaelic games themed fiction book for older children. “Twin Power: Throw In” was published by O’Brien Press in March 2022. Emma is currently working on the sequel to “Throw In” for O’Brien Press. Emma will continue to develop the “Izzy’s Magical Adventures in Sport” series of books, as well as the Twin Power series.
Emma’s inspiration to write her books was her grandmother, Maureen Hennebry, née Cashman. She was on the Cork camogie team which won the All-Ireland Camogie Championship three times in row between 1939 and 1941. Emma hopes that all young girls and boys who read this book will enjoy it and will be inspired to play not only Gaelic football and camogie, but all sports.
