O'Halloran Ford is the pen name of a world renowned artist who also happens to be very much an art historian, but one with a difference that will be discovered on reading his book, The Lilly and the Egg.
Ford now divides his time between painting and writing, whilst living with his artist wife in South India and by the sea in Ireland. Most of his formal training took place in London's National Gallery and he became familiar with most of the world's art museums, especially the Metropolitan in New York, where he also lived for a number of years. His work and a lifetime of travel and friendships with many of the world's best known and most powerful people, including the Count Franz-Ludwig von Stauffenberg, son of one of WWII's greatest heroes and something of a hero himself, led Ford to some extraordinary secrets and discoveries, which resulted in The Lilly and the Egg.
The Lilly and the Egg is based entirely on true stories woven together for literature's sake. Some parts of it might be difficult to believe, but few books could be more difficult to put down whilst you read.
