Annie Macmanus was born in Dublin and studied English Literature at Queen's University Belfast. For seventeen years she was a DJ on Radio 1, presenting such shows as Future Sounds and Radio 1's Dance Party.Her Sunday Times best-selling first novel, Mother Mother is a is a powerful coming-of-age novel and an intimate family study. It's about finding light in dark places, and it examines the cost of unconditional love.

Mary McConnell grew up longing for information about the mother she never knew, who died suddenly when Mary was only a baby. Her brother Sean was barely old enough to remember, and their father numbed his pain with drink.
Now aged thirty-five, Mary has lived in the same house her whole life. She's never left Belfast. She has a son, TJ, who's about to turn eighteen, and is itching to see more of the world.
