Ghostwriting has hit the news recently with Roy Keane and Roddy Doyle joining forces. Join Sue Leonard, Paul Perry and Karen Gillece for an intriguing exploration of what happens when there is more than one person involved in writing a book.

Sue Leonard recently co-wrote the number one bestseller, An Act of Love with Marie Fleming (Hachette Ireland, 2014), about Marie’s extraordinary life, and her fight for the right to die with dignity. She has worked on three other books as a ghost writer, and is a freelance journalist.

Karen Perry, author of The Boy That Never Was, is actually a writing partnership composed of Paul Perry, award winning poet and Hennessy New Writer of the Year and Karen Gillece, winner of the 2009 European Union Prize for Literature (Ireland).
