Paraic O’Donnell is a writer of fiction, poetry and literary criticism. His improvised Twitter short stories, including the celebrated “Cocktail Hour” series, which began every Friday at 4pm and ran into the late evening, have become hugely popular. His success on Twitter brought him to the attention of several literary agents, and he was encouraged to write longer fiction. The Maker of Swans is his debut novel.
Paraic lives in Co. Wicklow, Ireland with his wife and two children.
