Meet The Author

Advertising copywriter Liz Cowley has written poetry for many years, but only recently considered pursuing publication. Her first book, A Red Dress, took the top spot on Amazon and was turned into a stage show in Dublin. What Am I Doing Here? followed, and a selection from both books was featured as the finale of the West Cork Literary Festival. Her Irish grandfather, a vicar, came from Connemara, and she is married to Irish author Donough O’Brien, with a daughter and two stepsons. She has coauthored two novels with Donough: Serial Damage and Locked in Fear.

In this collection, her third book of humorous poems, Liz Cowley looks at the roller-coaster journey of women’s lives – and the lovers and liars, friends and enemies, joys and disappointments, frustrations and betrayals along the way. Wry, bittersweet, often hilarious, and with a characteristic sting in the tail, Liz brings her unique and often wicked wit to the pitfalls, perils and pleasures of love in a heady mix of laughter and tears.
