28. The Joanne Clancy Affair

April 14th, 2016

This week we talk about the story that’s a fire all over the writing world. Eilis O’Hanlon published an article in theIrish Independent about how she discovered her published novels were stolen and available for sale on kindle under the name Joanne Clancy. A very little digging finds that “Joanne Clancy” has 26 novels to her name and claims to go from start to finish writing a novel in just 6 weeks. We’re agog and aghast and also other words, which we’re afraid to write down lest they be stolen! But just how far does the conspiracy go?


Presented and produced by Cathy Clarke, Kate Mulholland and Máire Brophy
