About Bernard O'Keeffe

I worked in advertising before becoming a teacher and taught for many years. I've published four novels — 'No Regrets' (2013), '10 Things To Do Before You Leave School' (2019) and two crime novels in the DI Garibaldi series,  'The Final Round', and 'Private Lessons'. The third book in the series, 'Every Trick in the Book', will be published in February 2024.

I live in Barnes (where the Garibaldi novels are set) and when I'm not writing cheer myself up by watching QPR and listening to Leonard Cohen. I have few claims to fame, but count playing football with Nick Hornby, giving Clare Balding interview practice, teaching members of Mumford and Sons and Noah and The Whale, having lunch with George Best and nearly being recruited as a spy as some of my most significant achievements.
