About the author (2008)

Niamh Greene lives in Co Wexford with her husband and two children. Since she isn’t – yet – a bona fide celebrity herself (paparazzi, hello!) for this, her second novel, she conducted exhaustive and demanding field work amongst the magazine racks of her local newsagents. Just for research, you understand.
