Tana French is an Irish novelist and theatrical actress. Born in the USA, in the state of Vermont, she had a peripatetic childhood that took her to Florence and Rome, as well as the African nation of Malawi.

She attended Trinity College in Dublin, receiving a degree in drama and English. Prior to writing In the Woods, her first novel, she was best known as a professional actor in a wide variety of theatrical productions, as well as film and voice-over. She is a liaison of the Purple Heart Theatre Company.

Both her debut novel In the Woods and follow-up, The Likeness, have been bestsellers in hardcover and paperback. A resident of Dublin since 1990, she lives there with her husband and daughter—while maintaining dual citizenships in the US and Italy. (Adapted from the publisher and Wikipedia.)
