Shirley-Anne McMillan lives in South Down with her family where she works as a writer, and schools worker. In 2014, she won the SCBWI Undiscovered Voices competition with an extract from A Good Hiding which was published by Atom in August 2016. Set in Belfast, A Good Hiding is Shirley-Anne’s debut Young Adult novel. ‘A brisk and breezy novel that, despite the heavy subject matter, had me laughing aloud more than once’. (Irish Independent)
