Freya Kennedy is the pen name of Derry-based author Claire Allan – who is perhaps best known for her psychological thrillers! However, before turning a life of crime, Claire wrote women’s fiction for Irish publisher Poolbeg Press, her reinvention as Freya Kennedy will see her bring some love, laughter and heart-warming happiness to readers.
A true Derry girl, Freya Kennedy has lived all her life in the north of Ireland. She worked for 18 years as a journalist and has been writing full time since 2016.
She is a huge fan of all kinds of books, from Marian Keyes (she cried the first time she met Marian), to Rowan Coleman, to Jane Fallon, to Jojo Moyes. She also enjoys a good murder!
She continues to live in Derry with her husband, her two children, two cats and the best dog in the world.
