'O'Connell is a consummate story-teller - a unique talent who deserves to be a household name' Val McDermid
Born in 1947, Carol O'Connell studied at the California Institute of Arts/Chouinard and the Arizona State University. She lives now in New York City.

And O'Connell's prose - sharp, gritty and streetwise - is in top form" Publishers Weekly "One of the most poetic yet tough-minded writers" San Francisco Chronicle
