Sinéad was born and raised in Dublin where she grew up surrounded by books. Her mother is an author of children’s books. This instilled her childhood dream that would one day become a reality, that she too write her own novel.
After university, she went on to live in Paris, followed by London. It was at the age of thirty, while working as a journalist in London that she began to write creatively in her spare time – after work, at lunch times … and, truth be told, during work hours.
After a couple of years brainstorming different ideas, Sinéad joined a creative writing group and began to write her debut novel 'The Baby Trail'. Having been translated into 25 languages, Sinead has went on to write 14 bestselling novels, including 'The Good Mother' and 'Ours Secrets and Lies'.
