About Carmel Harrington

I’m Carmel Harrington and I write contemporary fiction for Harper Collins, where I’ve been dubbed the Queen of Emotional Writing! I swear, I should have shares in kleenex… ;)

But whilst my stories do tend to cover serious topics, I like to mix a lot of humour throughout them too.

If I’m not writing novels, I enjoyfreelance writing for magazines and newspapers. I’ve also discovered a new passion – playwriting and hope to do more of this in the future.

I live in a small village on the Irish coast, with my husband Roger and two children Amelia and Nate. I believe in Happily Ever After’s because that’s what happened to me.

Anything else you should know? Well, I’m pretty much always on a diet, I have hair that frizzes up in hot weather, in cold weather, ok lets face it, in pretty much any weather, I would love to sing on broadway (sadly my talents don’t back up my ambition!), I’m considered quite funny by my friends, on that note, I’m a good friend, love my family, love my dresses, in particular anything vintage, have a wicked handbag collection, possess a pretty decent eye for interior design, am known to for the dozens of photos I snap EVERY day of the children and can make a mean risotto.  Think that pretty much sums it up!

With my family, Rog aka Mr H, Amelia & Nate our children and my stepdaughter Eva.

Fair warning, you can expect some posts about writing and books and even the occasional blatant plug. Hey, book sales have got to keep me in anti-frizz products and spanx, not to mention the chocolate! But I do promise to keep them to a minimum. I hope you enjoy any time you spend here and if you do  please click ‘Follow’  which you will find on the left hand side sidebar.  You’ll also find icons for all the usual social media sites plus my email on the top left hand side, please do come find me and say hi!

Have a lovely day everyone and always remember this gem – Reading is dreaming with your eyes wide open.
