Welcome to the website of Tina Pisco
Best-selling author Tina Pisco has worked as a professional writer for over twenty-five years, writing for every medium except radio (including internet drama). Her most recent commission is for a series of web and print comics.
Her two best-selling novels: “Only a Paper Moon” (Poolbeg 1998), and “Catch the Magpie” (Poolbeg 1999), have been translated into five different languages.
She is well known in Cork, where she has lived for 20 years, particularly for her collection of newspaper columns: “A West Cork Life”, (RandomAnimals Press 2004) and a cookbook “West Cork Fusion” (RandomAnimals Press 2005).
Tina Pisco teaches creative writing throughout County Cork. She also works as an editorial consultant and reader for the FISH ANTHOLOGY and other literary prizes.
