Front table @ Waterstones, Kings Road, LONDON…Dec ’22. Best Christmas present EVER!!!
Claire Shiells grew up in rural Northern Ireland during the Troubles where she had the best of times and the worst of times. She calls herself Northern Irish except on St Patrick’s Day when she is inexplicably full on Top-Of-The-Morning-To-You Irish. Claire now lives in London and in her last life (before the longest maternity leave ever) was a journalist and magazine editor. After Dad is inspired by a true event and is her first novel.
“A dazzling debut,”
“This is an uplifting book, full of hope. I lifted this book and it filled me with joy. ‘These are the type of characters you’d love to have around your kitchen table,”
“Wonderful - a beguiling modern love story full of humour, suspense and a huge amount of heart. The lush setting is a joy and thoughts of Millie & Finn will stay with you for a long time.”
