Who is Tana French ? Who is her father ? Is she married or single ?

Tana French (born 1973) is an Irish novelist and theatrical actress born in Vermont.

Her debut novel In the Woods (2007), a psychological mystery, won the Edgar, Anthony, Macavity, and Barry awards for best first novel.

She lives in Dublin. The British online newspaper, The Independent, has referred to her as the First Lady of Irish Crime, “who very quietly has become a huge international name among crime fiction readers.”

Tana French was born in the United States to Elena Hvostoff-Lombardi and David French, but lived in numerous countries as a child, including Ireland, Italy, the US, and Malawi.

Her father was an economist who worked on resource management for the developing world, so the family lived in many different cultures.

French attended Trinity College, Dublin and trained in acting.

She ultimately settled in Ireland and since 1990 has lived in Dublin, which she considers home.

French is married and has two daughters with her husband. She has retained dual citizenship of the US and Italy.

She currently has about 5 million books in print and they have been translated to German while another of her novels, Faithful Place, has been translated into 20 languages.

Currently, three of her books, In the Woods, Faithful Place and The Likeness are slated to appear as a TV series. Her works are also available as audio-books.
