Gibney is from Mullingar, County Westmeath and has lived there all her life. She spent 30 years working with Westmeath County Council.
When her husband died in 2009, aged 49, three months after a diagnosis of cancer, Gibney turned to art and writing, self-publishing a children's book entitled Spring Sprong Sally. Gibney then started writing crime fiction and created her first novel in that genre. She worked with the Irish Writers Centre to improve her writing. Eventually she began a second novel and through that acquired an agent and a publishing contract with Bookouture, which has since been bought by Hachette Publishing.
