After signing a 3-book deal with Poolbeg in 2018, Antoinette published her debut novel Home to Cavendish, earlier this year. Home to Cavendish is a fast-paced work of women’s fiction, with a dual timeline moving between the Celtic Tiger and the Irish Civil War and set against the stately Cavendish Hall in Co. Cork.
She is currently working on her second novel The Secrets Left Behind, which starts when the tragic death of Kate Millington, in 1980’s rural Ireland, sends shockwaves through a tight-knit community. Unbeknownst to 3 strangers, Kate’s death will open doors to a dark past, shaking the very foundations on which their lives are built and forcing them to question in whom they can place their trust. But will they ever be able to make peace with The Secrets Left Behind?
Antoinette studied English and History at NUI Maynooth, followed by a Higher Diploma in Communications. Before moving into public relations, she worked as a broadcast journalist. She currently works as a Communications and Events Manager.
