Christina McKenna's memoir
Christina McKenna's books on exorcism in Ireland

Although best known as the novelist behind the celebrated Tailorstown Trilogy, Christina began her writing career with the publication of her memoir, My Mother Wore a Yellow Dress, in 2004. The publisher was Neil Wilson, Glasgow.


This was followed in 2006 by a most unusual book on the paranormal, commissioned by Gill and Macmillan, Dublin. Christina co-authored it with her husband. An American version appeared in 2007, published by HarperOne, San Francisco. It was The Dark Sacrament: True Stories of Modern-Day Demon Possession and Exorcism.

Christina had garnerned a considerable number of true-life accounts of hauntings in Ireland during her research. She assembled a number of them, and the Poolbeg Press, Dublin, published the collection in 2010 as Ireland's Haunted Women.
