Steve Cavanagh

Born Stephen Mearns in Belfast at the height of the Troubles, Cavanagh intended to read business studies at Dublin University but, owing to a drunken error, found he had registered to study law instead. Despite this inauspicious start Cavanagh went on to practice law and even take part in several high-profile civil rights cases. When his beloved mother died in 2011 he channelled his grief into writing his first legal thriller – a genre she had been a particular fan of. The Defence, which introduced his maverick lawyer protagonist Eddie Flynn, became a world-wide bestseller, prompting him to adopt his mother’s maiden name as a pseudonym to make separating his legal and literary work easier. Cavanagh’s success led him to give up the law to write full time in 2019, by which time he had written three more acclaimed Flynn thrillers and the standalone novel Twisted.

Cavanagh has been shortlisted for and won many crime fiction awards, including the Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger for Crime Novel of the Year for The Liar in 2018 and the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year for Thirteen in 2019.
