About

Carole Kennedy publishes under her Irish name, C.S. O’Cinneide (oh-ki-nay-da). Her writing has been described as “dark humour done well” by Publishers Weekly and “bloody frightening” by her mother.

Her first book, Petra’s Ghost, a dark literary thriller set on the Camino de Santiago in Spain was released by Dundurn Press in July 2019. It has been featured in the Toronto Star as one of the best horror books of the summer, as well as being selected by the Library Journal as a Wicked Good Read.

Carole is also the creator of the sassy, hard-drinking hitwoman character, Candace Starr. The first book in that series, The Starr Sting Scale, is set for publication in February 2020.
