Anna McPartlin's life and her writing are all about finding humour and humanity in even the darkest situations. Her experience of losing her parents at a young age has given her a profound understanding of loss, surviving it, and making the very best of life. Before becoming a full-time writer Anna was, among other things, a stand-up comedian and a claims adjuster. As well as novels, she writes TV comedy drama. She is in her thirties and lives outside Dublin with her husband, a musician.Review:
Full of charm ... we couldn't put it down * Closer * Emotionally charged * Heat * I loved every page ... It so impressed me that I will be reading it again. * Irish Mail on Sunday * A delightful roller-coaster ride of emotion * Sunday Independent * A rollicking good read * Sunday World * Influenced by the death of her parents and a friend at an early age, McPartlin's books could be grim, but her experience as a stand-up comic provide a counterbalance, producing nicely rounded novels with a light touch ... the perfect escape * Irish Independent *
