My name is Clare O’Dea and I am the author of the non-fiction book, The Naked Swiss: A Nation Behind 10 Myths, published in October 2016 by Bergli Books. The book is available to order on Amazon and other online retailers.
Originally from Dublin, I have lived in Switzerland for the past fourteen years, on the invisible line where the French- and German-speaking cultures meet. When not on peacekeeping patrol, I write fiction and non-fiction, and work as a translator. I spent nine years working as a journalist at the international news service of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation, www.swissinfo.ch, covering Swiss politics, culture and business news.
A good way to keep up-to-date with news and events about The Naked Swiss is to follow the Facebook page for the book. This article and podcast gives the best answer to the question – what’s the book about?
In other news, I have launched a new memoir writing service with my cousin Jennifer O’Dea in Dublin. If the idea of preserving family stories appeals to you, have a look at our website My Irish Memoir.
