Steve Cavanagh

Steve Cavanagh was born and raised in Belfast before leaving for Dublin at the age of eighteen to study Law. He practiced civil rights law and was involved in several high-profile cases; in 2010 he represented a factory worker who suffered racial abuse in the workplace and won the largest award of damages for race discrimination in Northern Ireland legal history. He holds a certificate in Advanced Advocacy and lectures on various legal subjects (but really he just likes to tell jokes). His novel The Liar won the 2018 CWA Gold Dagger award while his follow-up novel Thirteen was a Sunday Times top ten bestseller and won the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award in 2019. He is married with two young children.
