Fiction & Non-Fiction

Patricia O’Reilly’s Fiction

In the process of researching and putting together my first novel, Once Upon a Summer, I learned how not to write a novel and finally after countless re-writes and tearing aparts discovered how to. I’ve written another four novels, been translated and have had unrealised movie treatments suggested. A Type of Beauty, the story of Kathleen Newton is long-listed for Historical Novel Society International Award of 2013.
