Justine Delaney Wilson ignited controversy with her 2007 non-fiction book on middle class drug use in Ireland. In it, she revealed that a government minister and an airline pilot had taken cocaine during the course of their employment. She has now signed a lucrative two-book deal with international publishing house Hachette. Her first fictional work, An Ordinary Face, is being tagged “contemporary book club fiction” and will be released in May 2016.
