Beth O'Leary's picture

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).

Beth O'Leary recommends
Seven Summers (2024)
Paige Toon
"A truly beautiful love story, heart-wrenching and heart-warming in equal measure."
This Disaster Loves You (2024)
Richard Roper
"Richard Roper writes humour so brilliantly."
The Burnout (2023)
Sophie Kinsella
"I'll drop anything for a new Sophie Kinsella. The Burnout is hilarious, sparky and joyful - just the book you need if you're desperate for a break. I loved seeing Sasha coming back to herself on the windswept beach at Rilston!"
