Patricia O’Reilly lives in Dublin. Writing is in her blood. When she was a child she dreamed of having a book for sale in a bookshop with her name on its cover. And like the best of dreams, it came to pass – 10 times.
She divides her time between researching & writing historical novels and lecturing on creative writing in UCD & elsewhere.
She has written 5 historical novels: Once Upon a Summer, Time & Destiny, A Type of Beauty, the story of Kathleen Newton, and her latest The Interview.
The Interview is the story of what happened between Irish designer Eileen Gray and rising star of Fleet Street Bruce Chatwin when he interviewed her for the Sunday Times magazine.
She also writes a blog for writers – lovewriting.patriciaoreilly.net.
