Breda Hertaeg is a retired midwife who was born and raised in Dublin. She qualified as a nurse in Ireland before emigrating to Melbourne in the 1970s, where she married and raised a family.


Breda’s first short story was published in a popular women’s magazine many years ago. In recent times she has rediscovered her enjoyment of creative writing, and so far, two of her short stories have been accepted for publication in an anthology and a magazine. Proving it’s never too late to write.


Breda’s writing influences include Maeve Binchy, Frank McCourt, Ian McEwan, and Jennifer Worth (Call the Midwife). She is currently working on a novel set in Dublin during the early 1970s, titled The Belfast Express.
