Liz Nugent had several careers before turning her hand to writing. She was, among other things, a buyer for a construction company, a welfare office civil servant, a theatrical stage manager and a story associate on a tv soap opera.

In early 2014 her first novel, Unravelling Oliver, was published. It went straight to the top of the bestsellers list and also won the Crime Novel of the Year at the Irish Book Awards. Television rights for Unravelling Oliver have been optioned by Appian Way, Leonardo Di Caprio’s production company in Los Angeles.

Her second novel, Lying in Wait, was published in July 2016 and also went straight to number 1. It won the Ryan Tubridy Listener’s Choice prize at the Irish Book Awards and was shortlisted for Crime Novel of the Year. On its UK release in January 2017, Lying in Wait went straight into the UK bestseller list and was chosen for the hugely popular Richard & Judy Bookclub Spring 2017 list and won the Readerís Choice award for that season.

In Oct 2017, Liz won the Irish Woman of the Year Award for Literature.

She has written stories for children, radio plays, tv dramas and has good intentions to write a stage play very soon. Liz’s books have been translated into 18 languages.

Liz’s third novel, Skin Deep, was published in Ireland in April 2018, hit the number 1 spot and spent five months in the top ten bestsellers list.
