I found this biographical information on author Clare O'Donohue's website:
"I was born in
, the youngest of four children. My parents are
both from Chicago, Illinois , but they met in Ireland , moved to the London , and settled on US ’s South Side, where I was born and raised. Chicago
"I always knew I wanted to be a writer and in fact wrote my first novel (mini-novel actually. It was 60 pages) when I was 15. It was a mystery. After college I worked as a newspaper reporter and writing teacher before moving to LA and getting my first job in television. That was on the HGTV show, Simply Quilts.
"I worked on the show for four seasons, eventually becoming the Supervising Producer, but I’ve written and produced for a lot of other shows as well. In the last twelve years, I’ve worked on shows for The History Channel, truTV, Food Network, A&E, Discovery, TLC, and others. My work has taken me all across the
and abroad and I’ve met a diverse group of people –
from CEO’s to prison inmates, Malaysian orphans to famous athletes. US
"But all along I thought about writing a novel. I still loved mysteries so I finally sat down to write one. And lucky for me, I had the time. There’s a lot of what we in the freelance world like to call downtime, but is more commonly known as unemployment. Since I wasn’t earning any money, I also had motivation to write something that could catch the interest of a publisher.
"And, luckily, I did. In 2008, I published The Lover’s Knot, the first in the Someday Quilts series. Now I’ve added A Drunkard’s Path and The Double Cross, and The Devil’s Puzzle." Note: (The fifth in the series, The Double Wedding Ring, was released in September 2013.)
