Ber Carroll was born in Blarney, a small but rather famous village in Ireland. The third child of six, she often retreated from the chaos of family life by immersing herself in books. She has fond memories of the mobile library bus that used to pull up outside their house in Blarney and the dozen or so books she would borrow at a time, some quite inappropriate for her age.
Ber moved to Sydney in 1995 with her then partner now husband, Rob. She got a job as a finance manager in the IT industry and began to climb the corporate ladder. The exciting and dynamic work environment captured her imagination and inspired her first novel, Executive Affair. Ber has written seven other novels including Just Business, High Potential, The Better Woman, Less Than Perfect, Worlds Apart and Once Lost. The Missing Pieces of Sophie McCarthy is her first novel published under BM Carroll.
Ber gave up her finance career when she realised that she couldn't hold down a demanding job, be mum to two small children and write books to contractual deadline. She now writes fulltime, but says that she misses getting dressed up for work and being around people who listen to what she has to say, unlike her kids!
