Roisin Meaney

In 1977 Roisin Meaney finished a sentence and won a car. The sentence was 'I would like to win a Ford Fiesta because my father won't let me drive his.' Over the following 24 years she wrote a lot more sentences and won a lot more prizes. In 2001 she finally decided to keep writing sentences until she filled a book, and in 2008 she gave up her teaching job to become a fulltime writer. Since 2001 she's written sixteen adult novels and two children's books. Her work has been translated into German, Spanish, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Dutch, Italian and Russian. Two of her books have also been published in the US: Semi-Sweet (previously Love in the Making) and Life Drawing for Beginners (previously The Things We Do for Love), and her four most recent books have also been published in Australia and New Zealand by Hachette Australia. All of Roisin's novels have made it into the Irish bestseller list, with The Last Week of May (2007) going all the way to the top, and The People Next Door (2008) and The Reunion (2016) reaching number two. Four other books, One Summer (2012), After the Wedding (2014), I'll Be Home for Christmas (2015) and The Birthday Party (2019) form a series; all are set on Roone, a small island off the west coast of Ireland, and all feature the same basic cast of characters. Roisin is currently working on a new novel, due to be published in the summer of 2020, all going well.
