Thanks for stopping by!
I’m Carmel Harrington and I write contemporary fiction for Harper Collins, where I’ve been dubbed the Queen of Emotional Writing!
When I’m not writing novels, I enjoy doing some freelance work for magazines and newspapers, plus the occasional play.
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!
Here’s a little gallery of pics of me & my lovely family:-
Whether you have stumbled here by mistake (please stay!) or are here because you read one of my blog posts, why don’t you have a look around now you are here and while away a few minutes while you have a cuppa.
As I’m an author, 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.
So my friends, once again I’ll say thank you for stopping by and for your ongoing support. It is this support that allows me to do what I love – Write. 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.
