About the Author
Maria Madalena O'Neill was born in Lisbon Portugal. She has always been very interested in nature and in the mystery of existence.
Interested in ancient history, lost civilizations, myths and legends, ONeill presented in a Portuguese Museum some artwork about Celtic ancient civilization. The paintings were about The Battle of Moytura. It is found in a 16th century manuscript, but is believed to be a composite work compiled in the 12th century from 9th century material. Children came from all schools to listen to the legends and appreciate the paintings.
ONeill thinks that children should learn how to respect all living beings on the planet. They should also play more outside and not spend so much with their computers.
