More About the Author
Denise Deegan is the best-selling author of seven contemporary novels, including her most recent series for young adults, The Butterfly Novels.
The first of these, And By The Way... follows the story of Alex Newman (16), a rock star's daughter who attends an elite Dublin school and who is angry with just about everyone.
The second in the series, And For Your Information... follows the story of Alex's friend, Sarah. The book opens with her shoplifting for the first time. And For Your Information has been shortlisted for an Irish Book Award.
The third book in the series, And Actually... is an Irish bestseller. It follows the story of Alex and Sarah's friend Rachel, who everyone thinks is the strong one, the guru. There's a lot they don't know.
Denise's writing has been praised for its warm, believable characters, 'sparky' dialogue and fast pace. An Irish writer, she has been published in the UK, Germany, Turkey, Holland and Korea.
Before writing, she was a check out girl, a nurse, a pharmaceutical sales rep, a lecturer, a china restorer and an entrepreneur (running her own public relations business). She contributes regularly to the media. And is still learning how to be a mother.

There are two Denise Deegans. One is an English playwright who wrote the play, Daisy Pulls It Off. The other is me! Though Daisy Pulls It Off appears under my name on amazon, it was not written by me.
