Beth O'Leary



Beth O'Leary studied English at university before going into children's publishing. She lives as close to the countryside as she can get while still being in reach of London, and wrote her first novel, The Flatshare, on her train journey to and from work.

She is now writing novels full time, and if she's not at her desk, you'll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book, a cup of tea, and several woolly jumpers (whatever the weather).

Grown-Ups (2020)
Marian Keyes

Malibu Rising (2021)
Taylor Jenkins Reid
"Heart-wrenching and utterly compelling, Malibu Rising is a story about the fierce bonds between four fascinating siblings.

Its characters felt completely real to me - each one is flawed and messy and impossible not to love."
thumb
