Louise Phillips

Dublin-born crime author Louise Phillips won the Ireland AM Crime Fiction Book of the Year Award for The Doll’s House, her bestselling second novel, in 2013.

Red Ribbons (2012) and Last Kiss (2014), which also feature criminal psychologist Dr Kate Pearson and DI O’Connor, were each shortlisted for the award.

Louise’s work has been published as part of various anthologies and literary journals. She has won the Jonathan Swift Award, was a winner in the Irish Writers’ Centre Lonely Voice platform, and her writing has been shortlisted for prizes such as the Molly Keane Memorial Award and Bridport UK.

In 2015, she was awarded a writing residency at Cill Rialaig Artists’ Retreat in Kerry and was also a judge on the Irish panel for the EU Literary Award.

The Game Changer is her fourth novel.
