A proper Cornish maid with a rich Cornish heritage, Lamorna Ireland has taken inspiration from the beautiful county from a very young age. Whilst teaching English in a local secondary school and being a dedicated wife and mother, Lamorna has always taken joy from the written word. This April 2020, she released her debut novel, ‘Unexpected Beginnings’ – a contemporary romance set on a Cornish cider farm, which tells the story of a young American girl finding unexpected beginnings under the nurturing wing of the Trengrouse family. The story gives an insight to the complicated tangles of family love and grief, whilst transporting readers to the tranquil Cornish countryside.

Lamorna’s love for coffee and quality food has recently inspired her to write a blog for some of her favourite tearooms and cafés, whilst taking her debut novel on its own unique book tour. Her blog Lamorna Corner can be found bursting with positive vibes and yummy places to visit, including The Elm Tree tearooms and Duchy of Cornwall Nursery.

Lamorna continues to spend her free time adventuring around her beautiful home county, her feet firmly rooted to the place of her ancestors. Plans are underway to release her second novel after Christmas: yet another feel-good romance, this time set in the charming working harbour known as Mevagissey. You can follow the latest news and updates on Lamorna’s work on her website (, as well as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. She also sends out a quarterly newsletter with exclusive news for her VIP readers, which is free to subscribe to.
