Cecelia's working nine to five now babies are in the mix

Fergus Black

BURNING the midnight oil used to be a regular chore for Cecelia Ahern as she churned out her latest bestseller.

But work has now become a nine-to-five job for the 31- year-old mother of two, as she juggles family life with her busy writing career.

The best-selling author, whose latest novel 'One Hundred Names' has just hit the bookshelves, hasn't let marriage or motherhood slow down her momentum.

"It's all about managing time," said Cecelia, whose second child Sonny, brother to two-year-old daughter Robin, arrived earlier this year.

The 'PS, I Love You' author said she was delighted that her latest book had already received a "great reaction" from the public.

And she revealed she is already lining up her next project and is about to start another book in January.

"I have a German TV crew coming over to film a TV show," she told the Irish Independent.

Ahern was at Dublin's Connolly Station yesterday as she launched Ireland's first virtual book shop.

Book retailer Eason unveiled its latest online shopping venture which will allow customers to order and read books by simply scanning code with their smartphones.

Eason's group head of marketing and retail development David Field said customers would be able to scan 40 titles and the retailer would consider extending the idea to other rail stations.
