Carole Kennedy publishes under her Irish name, C.S. O’Cinneide (oh-ki-nay-da). Her writing has been described as “dark humour done well” by Publishers Weekly and “bloody frightening” by her mother.

Her first book, Petra’s Ghost, a psychological thriller set on the Camino de Santiago in Spain will be released by Dundurn Press in July 2019

She is also the creator of the sassy, hard-drinking hitwoman character, Candace Starr, who will appear in the first published book of that crime series as soon as Petra’s had a run.

She started this blog to feature women who write lots of stories that frighten lots of their mothers.
