Maura McHugh lives in Co. Galway, Ireland. She has been involved in the IT Industry since 1996. Her technology blog (Babblogue Blog), which she began in 2000, was one of a handful of Irish blogs at the time. In July 2001 she left her full-time job as a Systems Administrator and IT Manger to strike out on her own as a freelance web designer and writer.
Currently Maura is the webmaster, blogger and editor of the electronic newsletter of the Irish Playwrights and Screenwriters Guild. She also writes for various media. Her short stories and poetry have been published in magazines and anthologies in the USA and the UK.
In November 2005 she graduated with a first class honours MA in Screenwriting from the Huston School of Film in Galway.
She is available for projects that require a creative insight into technological issues, as well as those looking for a writer's perspective on today's rapidly-evolving IT culture.
