Born in County Kildare. She wrote her first ten novels and several plays under the name of M.J. Farrell. These include The Rising Tide, Two Days in Aragon, Loving Without Tears, Taking Chances, All Passions Spent and Treasure Hunt. Her plays were directed by Gielgud. After a particularly bitter criticism of Dazzling Prospect, she stopped writing for many years. In 1981 Good Behaviour was released under her own name. It was short-listed for the Booker Prize and she went on to produce Time after Time, Loving and Giving and Conversation Piece. She was the daughter of Moira O’Neill . She is buried in County Waterford.
