About the Author

Moïra Fowley-Doyle is half-French, half-Irish and lives in Dublin with her husband, their young daughter, and their old cat. Moïra's French half likes red wine and dark books in which everybody dies. Her Irish half likes tea and happy endings. Moïra started a PhD on vampires in young adult fiction before concentrating on writing young adult fiction with no vampires in it whatsoever. She wrote her first novel at the age of eight, when she was told that if she wrote a story about spiders she wouldn't be afraid of them anymore. Moïra is still afraid of spiders, but has never stopped writing stories.

Reviews

* "Fowley-Doyle's stunning debut novel weaves the temporal and the spiritual into a seamless reality, rich in emotional impact. Devastating loss and abuse are balanced by romance, teen hijinks, and spine-tingling discoveries . . . This thought-provoking narrative will cast its spell over older teens and adults alike."--School Library Journal, starred review

* "Ghosts, secrets, and magic collide in this Irish author's astonishing debut . . . a moving portrait of a fractured family, knitting itself back together with courage and love. A powerful novel from an exciting new talent."--Kirkus, starred review

"Haunting"--Entertainment Weekly

"Entirely unique."--Bustle.com

"Amazing."--Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author

"Atmospheric and magical."--VOYA

"Sensuous, eerie​, lyrical . . . Fowley-Doyle's The Accident Season reads like a poem. The mystery is intriguing, the writing is gorgeous, and the characters are vivid. A lovely debut."--April Tulcholke, author of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

"Readers will be swept away by Fowley-Doyle's lyrical writing andentrancing premise in this tale of forbidden love and magic."--Booklist

"A lyrical and sometimes chilling exploration of the ways in which we manipulate memories to fall in line with our present narrative--the lies we tell ourselves to keep our brains safe and happy. Cara's narration brilliantly, sometimes brutally conveys the unraveling of both Cara and her family . . . and the bittersweet ending will haunt readers as much it does Cara."--BCCB
