Sheila O’Flanagan has signed a new two-book deal with Headline.
The first novel in the new contact will be published in summer 2017.
Before that, in 2016 Headline will publish O’Flanagan’s 21st novel, while Hodder Children’s Books will publish her first children’s novel, The Crystal Run.
The new deal, which is for British Commonwealth rights including Canada, was agreed by Marion Donaldson, executive editor at Headline, and agent Carole Blake of the Blake Friedmann Literary Agency.
Donaldson said: "I’m thrilled that Sheila has signed a new deal with Headline. No one writes about the dilemmas women encounter quite like Sheila O’Flanagan, and her writing grows stronger with every novel. It’s fantastically exciting for us all to have two more unputdownable and thought-provoking novels from Sheila to look forward to."
