Sheila O'Flanagan is the award-winning author of THE HIDEAWAY and over twenty other titles, including the Sunday Times bestsellers WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT, THE MISSING WIFE and IF YOU WERE ME. Sheila is also the winner of the Irish Independent Popular Fiction Book of the Year Award, ALL FOR YOU and the Irish Tatler Woman of The Year for Literature. In addition to her full length novels, she has written the bestselling short story collections DESTINATIONS, CONNECTIONS and A CHRISTMAS WITH YOU, as well as THE CRYSTAL RUN series for children.
Sheila has always loved telling stories, and after working in banking and finance for a number of years, she decided it was time to fulfil a dream and give writing her own book a go. So she sat down, stuck ‘Chapter One’ at the top of a page, and got started. Sheila is now a full-time writer and lives in Dublin with her husband.
