Leland Bardwell was a writer of poetry, plays, novels and short fiction.  Different Kinds of Love, her only short story collection, was originally published in 1987 and rereleased in 2011.

From unfinished housing estates left to literally rot to courtrooms, train stations and hospitals, Bardwell explores an Irish society weighed down by the abuse of women and children and the social and economic disadvantage of the marginalised.
