Down These Green Streets gets the No Alibis treatment

Posted by:

I was most upset to miss the launch of Down These Green Streets in No Alibis up in bonny Belfast. The fates on this occasion conspired against me, but by all accounts it looks like an excellent night was had by all.

Aside from the launch itself I was rather hoping to catch up with my pal Brian McGilloway and congratulate him on his latest book, Little Girl Lost.

Down These Green Streets and Little Girl ...

A Shock to the System.

Posted by:

My essay, A Shock to the System, printed originally in the excellent Down These Green Streets, was reprinted in the equally excellent antiroom.com today.

It’s easy as a crime fiction writer to gloss over on occasion the true agony of crime and brutality. But behind every murder, every rape, every stabbing, kidnapping or assault, real flesh and blood people suffer and it behooves us all to remember that.

Take care folks.

Summertime and the living is, well, surprisingly busy.

Posted by:

Gosh it has been a busy period. Between finishing Fair Game, and working on a new novel it’s been pretty much all go. Much like the fat wood pigeon in my back garden, I feel more buoyant than I actually am.
Tomorrow night I will be attending the Gutterbookshop in Temple Bar where the excellent Bob is hosting the launch of Down These Green Streets. I am so excited about this book and want to commend Declan Burke ...

A productive morning.

Posted by:

Fair Game has gone out to the various houses to be read and pondered over. I took last week off, but, as is my wont, have grown bored silly with this ‘free time’ malarkey already. Free time to do what exactly, I can only mow the lawn so many times.

Last night I grumbled to my husband that in order to get back to work I needed an idea. I fell asleep and as luck would have in had one of ...

New version of Blurb!

“On a hot summer’s day death comes to Rockville High school in the shape of two disgruntled teenagers with hate in their hearts and guns in their hands. For heroic teacher Jessie Conway the fallout from this tragedy is unimaginable: before long she suffers media intrusions into her carefully constructed private life, intrusions that reveal a past she has long strived to forget.

Happy New Year.

Posted by:

I know, I’m a week late and various dollars short. I have no excuse except to say I’ve been horrendously busy.

So what am I up to now?

Well the new book, ‘Fair Game’ (working title) is in the editing phase and will be done this week. As I mentioned before this is the first of my novels to be set Stateside. Why? Geography. Without a vast landscape where a person is unlikely to bump into another person the premise of the ...
