Carmel’s third novel Every Time A Bell Rings is on sale now.
Carmel lives with her husband Roger and two children Amelia (5) and Nate (4) in Co. Wexford, Ireland. She’s also step-mother to Eva (13) and contrary to the folklore of fairytales, she’s not one bit evil.
Carmel is an author, published with Harper Collins UK, a freelance writer and one of the panelists on TV3’s Midday show. She has been interviewed on TV in Ireland and USA and is a popular keynote speaker, in USA, UK and of course all over Ireland.
Carmel initially self-published her first novel, Beyond Grace’s Rainbow & it was an amazon & iTunes bestseller. Tracy Brennan of Trace Literary Agency soon had a three book deal secured with Harper Impulse, the digital imprint of publishing greats Harper Collins. Beyond Grace’s Rainbow was republished in September 2013, followed by The Life You Left in June 2014 and Every Time A Bell Rings October 2015. Eleven translations of Carmel’s books will be published between 2016-2017.
In 2015, she signed a further two-book contract with HarperCollins, moving imprints to the women’s fiction team of Harper Fiction. Her fourth book (Title to be announced) will be published 30th June 2016.
Anything else you need to know? Carmel has a borderline unhealthy obsession for The Walking Dead. And Tayto crisps.
