Frankfurt Writers is happy to announce this great writer as a speaker for the Frankfurt Writers’ Seminar. She is not only a bestselling author but also the top literary scout in Ireland and has founded organisations like Writing.ie and Inkwell. In other words, she is a woman every aspiring writer should want to meet.
Vanessa Fox O’Loughlin is the founder of The Inkwell Group publishing consultancy and the world’s only national writing resources website Writing.ie. Working closely with agents and editors in Ireland and the UK, Vanessa is Ireland’s leading literary scout who has assisted many award winning and best selling authors to publication.
Vanessa has been writing fiction since her husband set sail across the Atlantic for eight weeks and she had an idea for a book. She is represented by Simon Trewin at WME and writes crime as Sam Blake. The first of her Cat Connolly thriller trilogy LITTLE BONES was published in May 2016 and hit the bestseller list, spending 8 weeks in the Top 10 with 4 weeks at No. 1. IN DEEP WATER, book 2 of the trilogy became a bestseller in April 2017 and book 3 NO TURNING BACK will be out in Ireland in May 2018, and in the UK in 2019. The trilogy will be available in audio from early 2018 and Film/TV rights have been sold.
Vanessa Fox O’ Loughlin will replace Alex Barcla, who had to cancel due to personal circumstances
