Claudia Carroll

Bestselling author and actress, best known for her recurring role as Nicola in RTE’s Fair City.

To date, Claudia has published sixteen bestselling novels, three of which have been optioned, two for movies and one for TV. She’s currently hassling producers for a walk-on role, and is hoping they might even let her keep the costumes for free.

In 2018, she published The Secrets of Primrose Square, which was a number one bestseller and which was subsequently adapted for the stage and streamed for four evenings from the Draiocht Theatre in Blanchardstown, Dublin in July 2021.

The Women of Primrose Square was published in August 2019 and also went to number one. The Fixer was published by Zaffre (Bonnier) on the 5th August 2021.

Her latest book The Love Algorithm was published by Zaffre (Bonnier) on the 4th August 2022 and tells the story of Iris, who sick of being let down in the dating world takes matters into her own hands - using her analytical skills to create ‘Analyzed’ a dating app like no other!
