Brigid Feehan was born, raised and educated in Wellington.
She studied law at Victoria University and travelled overseas for a few years before returning to Wellington. She now lives in Island Bay with her family and her probably not very bright, but definitely very handsome cat, Magnus. Brigid has worked for the government in a number of roles, none of which have involved meeting the Prime Minister.
Stella Star, Brigid’s first novel, won the Tom Fitzgibbon Award and was included in the Storylines List of Notable Books in 2006. A sequel, Maybe Stella, was published in 2007.
The Life and Times of Eddie McGrath
About the Book
Eddie wins a national competition where she can spend a day with her local MP and give a speech in Parliament (where she'll meet the Prime Minister) but it's a prize Eddie doesn't want! When her dad is injured in a workplace accident he sets his sights on getting better for Eddie's day with the PM...so Eddie sets her sights on going through with it. A spirited story about the times when what we don’t want, turns out to be more than we could hope for.
