Geraldine O’Neill grew up in Cleland, a small mining village, in Lanarkshire, Scotland. The second of six children, she was educated in St Mary’s Primary in Cleland then Holy Cross High School in Hamilton.

Whilst working as a teacher in the local primary school in Ireland, Geraldine helped start up a local writers’ group which is still going strong 13 years later. She is an accomplished public speaker, and was President of Tullamore Toastmasters in 2002.

She started up a Book Circle in Tullamore which is now in its 6th year, and one of their meetings was broadcast live on National Radio from Geraldine’s house in April 2004!

Geraldine O’Neill has been writing since the early 90’s and had gained a number of awards for her short stories before embarking on her first novel. She has also had a number of poems published.


She has had three novels published in Ireland by Poolbeg to date: Tara Flynn, Tara’s Fortune and Aisling Gayle. Both Tara Flynn and Tara’s Fortune are now published in the UK and Commonwealth by Orion.
