With more than ten years experience in broadcasting and journalism, Co Kildare native Emer McLysaght wasn't sure if she'd ever get around to writing that book. However, 2017 found her with bestselling novel Oh My God, What A Complete Aisling under her belt, co-authored with long time friend and collaborator Sarah Breen. The second book in the Aisling series The Importance of Being Aisling, was published in 2018, and the third Once Twice Three Times an Aisling was published in 2019. Both titles won the Popular Fiction Book of the Year at the Irish Book Awards in back-to-back years.
Emer lives in Dublin and has somehow ended up with three cats.
