Growing up in Waterford, the oldest city in Ireland, Deirdra was often lonesome as an only child. She spends her days by the sea where she is most at peace. In the evenings, she spends hours laboring over her favorite hobby ~ building tiny ships to fit inside of old bottles (a craft she learned from her grandfather). She prefers to walk rather than drive, she always dresses for dinner and still sends hand written notes to her friends. Someday she'll travel the world - but it could only be by sea, for Deirdra will never leave the ocean ~ it is her truest friend.
