Colette Caddle's first novel TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE was published to enormous success in Ireland in 1999 and remained at the No 1 bestseller spot for four weeks. Colette was born, bred and still lives in Dublin. Before she started writing, she worked in the Insurance industry for seventeen years as a clerk, a computer operator, a programmer and then a marketing co-ordinator. She denies, however, that any of her characters are based on the real people she encountered in her career. She is married to Tony, has a son, Peter, and describes herself as a full-time mother and a part-time author.
