Been around the world and I, I, I can’t find…well, time actually.

Posted by:

Hello, long time no blog, but I have been stupidly busy.  I was down in sunny Galway for the  Cuirt festival, interviewing three top authors on all things crime. Then up to even sunnier Belfast to one of my favourite shops, No Alibis, for the launch of John McAllister’s  The Station Sergeant.  This week, down here in damp (boo) old Dublin, I chatted to the ever lovely Louise Phillips over on writers.ie about publishing.

I also heard some ...

Writing, teaching, and publishing, oh my.

Posted by:

This weekend I will be teaching a crime course at the wonderful Irish Writers Centre, should be fun; these events are always inspiring, if a lot of hard work for my poor pupils, many of whom have no idea how much writing they will have to do. When I finish tomorrow, I am going to join my fellow citizens at The Garden of Remembrance to honor Savita Halappanavar, and to protest her passing in such a barbaric fashion. It ...

Archer and News.

Posted by:

Good mid-summer to you. I can’t believe it’s July already, can you?

As you can imagine, the galloping looney in the photo above takes up a considerably amount of my spare time. His name is Archer and he’s part angel, part brat.  He is fifteen-weeks-old and likes chewing, running, chewing, water, chewing and annoying the cats, neither of whom are overly impressed with this new addition. They tolerate him in that ...

Good afternoon from a chilly Dublin. It was a glorious week of hail and wind and rain wasn’t it? No? Okay then.

April 25th I will begin teaching a six-week course on crime writing; all relevant information can be found – here.  Hopefully by then I will have had time for a haircut and won’t look quite so wild and woolly.

In other news, the official release date for The Chosen, paperback version, is May 1st, which naturally means another round ...
