Growing up, Sinead Moriarty was inspired by watching her mother, an author of children's books, writing at the kitchen table. Her childhood dream was to write a novel. 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. Her first novel, The Baby Trail, a bitter-sweet story of a couple struggling to have a baby (inspired by her own early difficulties conceiving) was published in 2004 and has been translated into twenty languages. Sinead Moriarty's novels have sold over half a million copies in Ireland and the UK. She has won over readers and critics telling stories that are funny, humane, moving and relevant to modern women. She lives in her native Dublin with her husband and their three children.
The inevitable comparisons with Marian Keyes are justified and well deserved ... a brilliant book for lovers of intelligent chick-lit. You'll identify with elements of all the characters, guffaw in parts and scowl in others. * Heat * Witty, touching, easy to read ... I thought I might like this one, but I really and truly loved it ... If standard chick lit is a fast food burger, then this is a Kobe steak: the same basic ingredients and idea, but delivered to much higher quality and far more satisfying. * thebookbag.co.uk * Anyone with a sister will identify with this sad, funny and touching story * Closer * Timely, funny, smart ... give yourself a break from the doom and gloom and get stuck into this cracker of a novel * Image * Marian Keyes has for years been the undisputed queen ... Sinead Moriarty is now a worthy competitor * Sunday Independent * Moving, disarmingly honest and at times laugh-out-loud funny * Sunday Times * Fans of Sinead's writing will know that they can expect honesty, humour and great story-telling * Hello * Her characters are well drawn, their dilemmas are all too realistic and their personalities certainly fizzle * Irish Independent *
