Who is Claire O’Connor?

Claire O’Connor is an Irish multi-genre fiction writer. After many years of living away, she recently set up home on the rugged Southwest coast of Ireland with her partner and adored dog. When she’s not writing she’s reading, taking photos on long nature walks, or tending to her veggie garden.

Since she was a little girl, she has been writing stories (including fairytale and cartoon fan fiction 🙂 ) and poetry. In 2019, Claire graduated with a BA Honours degree including Creative Writing. Since then, she has contributed short fiction to various anthologies. She enjoys writing short vignettes for fun, and published her first book, an anthology of shorts and poetry in 2020. V is for Vignettes and Verses will be relaunched with new work in 2024.  Claire published Over The Wall in June 2023, the first book in her coming-of-age thriller trilogy Over The Wall. Into the Old, the second book is to be released in January 2024.
