Louise O’Neill grew up in Clonakilty, a small town in West Cork. Her first novel, Only Ever Yours was released in 2014.

Louise’s second novel, Asking For It, was published in September 2015 to widespread critical acclaim. She went on to win the Specsaver’s Senior Children’s Book of the Year at the 2015 Irish Book Awards, the Literature Prize at Irish Tatler’s Women of the Year Awards, and the American Library Association’s Michael L. Printz award. Asking For It was voted Book of the Year at the Irish Books Awards 2015 and spent 52 consecutive weeks in the Irish top 10 bestseller list. The New York Times called it “riveting and essential” and The Guardian named O’ Neill “the best YA fiction writer alive today.” Both novels have been optioned for screen.
