I’m Fionnuala, pronounced “Finoola”, am older than I’ll ever admit and am Irish, living in Ascot. I am really proud to day that I’m a writer. Before my writing career, I was an insurance pen pusher, a too-short-to-ever-be-successful model and a secretary, finally ending up in the property world. There, for many years, I was a home search agent – think Phil and Kirstie but without the cameras – that was me. I loved it while it lasted but the day came when that writing itch just had to be scratched.

I’m married, a mother, a sibling, a daughter, a friend: all roles which help provide fodder for the day job, plus I’m a dialogue whore; love listening in on conversations, on real life drama. Coffee shops, the tube, standing at a till, I can probably be seen scribbling on a yellow post it. I love to write about relationships, peel away the layers that make up couples, friends, parents and children, siblings. I want to know the ‘who’, the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of what’s happening in their lives and how they really feel about it.

My second novel ‘The Day I Lost You’, a story about loss and love in all it’s guises is published by HarperCollins. The trade paperback (Ireland only) and digital (worldwide) editions have just been released with the UK paperback to follow later this year. My first published novel, ‘You, Me and Other People’ also published by HarperCollins is available now. Foreign editions are also published in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Italy, the Czech republic with Russia, Portugal, Brazil, Turkey and Slovakia to follow.

Writer Superpowers 

I’m happy to talk about anything to do with the writing journey up to this moment and beyond – the ten year apprenticeship. The Agent moment. The Book Deal moment. The reality afterwards! Being a mother, wife, daughter, sister, and yes, the youngest grandmother I know…

Anything really!
