Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Aoife Clifford. If you are looking at my first name dumbstruck by the number of vowels contained within and wondering how the heck do you say it, you are not alone. Aoife is an Irish name and pronounced Eefa (similar to Eva but with an f instead of the v). Quite simple really, just don't think about the spelling.
This website is dedicated to my writing, in particular, my first novel, All These Perfect Strangers, which will be published in 2016 (March in Australia, June in the UK).
At the moment Advance Reading Copies are being read in Australia, proofs are being finalised in the United Kingdom, Bolinda audio are working out who will be reading it for their audiobook and I'm starring in my first video clip ever talking about my book. It is all very exciting.
On this website, I'll be posting about all of the above and more, including events planned around the launch of my book.
Kurt Vonnegut described writing life as having to jump off cliffs and developing your ‘wings on the way down’. For me, it is more like parkour, lots of little leaps of faith and occasional running into a block of concrete, getting up battered and bruised to start again. I'd love for you to come join me on the journey.
Thanks for dropping in!
