Anne-Marie Casey is a screenwriter, novelist and playwright.

Current projects include her original TV series idea Wild Irish Girl, set in 1951 in Cong, Mayo, during the filming of ‘The Quiet Man’, for Fields Entertainment, LA, and her adaptations of The Story of Lucy Gault by William Trevor, set in Cork in the 1920s, for Fields Entertainment/Parallel Films/Screen Ireland to be directed by Aisling Walsh, and The Master, the story of Charlotte Bronte’s secret love in Brussels, from the novel by Jolien Janzing, for David Kelly Productions and Blue Ink Productions.

Her first novel, An Englishwoman in New York, was bought and edited by Amy Einhorn for Putnam/Penguin in the US, and, along with her second novel, The Real Liddy James, was also published by Hodder in the UK. An Englishwoman in New York was a Kirkus Reviews best book of the year in the US, and a YOU magazine book club pick in the UK.

Her stage adaptations of Little Women and Wuthering Heights enjoyed sell-out runs at the Gate Theatre, Dublin. Her new version of Little Women will be co-produced this summer by the Watford Palace Theatre (Director Brigid Larmour) and Pitlochry Festival Theatre, UK.

A graduate of Oxford University, (MA English), Syracuse University, (MSc Film & TV) and the short directing programme at NYU, she holds dual UK/Irish nationality and lives in Dublin, Ireland.
