Seasonal Greetings and a spot of news.

Posted by:

I’ll keep this short and sweet as I am up to my eyeballs doing edits this morning- indeed morning is almost over- gah!

Release date for Blood Money as I may have mentioned is March 5th, which is a Friday,  but I think I will have a book launch, perhaps on the 4th (?). So keep your fancy diaries open for an evening around that time. Come one and all, everybody will be welcome.

Also, yay for Christmas, I wasn’t really feeling ...

New Book, New Jacket, Old Basset.

Posted by:

Oh my, it has been so very long since I last updated. Mea Culpa, but YES (!) Darren and H’olic, I have been awfully busy, typing, and eating toast and running and…okay, I have no real excuse, I simply don’t like to waffle unless I have something to say.

Today I finished Blood Money, the next QuicK Investigation book, all going well with the edits and copy edits  and so on it ought to be in shops by February or thereabouts. ...

Sunshine makes it better.

Posted by:

I’m gently sunburned, but turning a nice shade of brown. I was sitting here earlier with the  dog, thinking about by best friend’s wedding next week. Will it be sunny? I truly hope so. But if it ain’t? Well, if is ain’t it ain’t. She’ll still be marrying a wonderful man, she’ll still be a beautiful bride, I’ll still be proud of her and trying not to ruin the makeup with tears of joy.

Working hard on book 7, entitled Blood ...

Time off for good behaviour.

Posted by:

Time off is boring. I have mowed the lawn to death, cleaned out under the stairs, cleaned out the shed, walked the dog repeatedly, considered developing a drinking problem, rejected said thought, run for miles and  have finally reached the conclusion that I don’t actually like time off. It’s as dull as dishwater. So now that I can admit that I can cheerfully crack on with book 7( no title, no plot, no clue).

Currently reading Val McDermid’s book A Darker ...

Irish Book Awards

Posted by:

Well, I didn’t win for best crime thingie and that blasted Alex did. Fortunately I had bigger hair, so nah nah ni nah nah.

No seriously, it was a terrific night and Andrew and I had a cracking time. I got to meet up with Brian McGilloway and his lovely wife and a glowing Tana and her charming beau, and of course Alex, the delightful hussy. Big ups to Ciara Considine and Faith and Breda, and congrats to Ronan on his ...

Running and Writing.

Posted by:

Today I was running in the BUPA Great Run -at the speed of no kittens- when I realised I was thoroughly enjoying myself, despite my lack of any real pace. The sun was shining, my friend Ian was running ahead of me, all was pretty much right with the world. I don’t normally get bursts of contentment so wholesome so I basked in it. Then I hit the 8k mark and had to run up a hill.

I have finished ...

Undertow and the Irish Book Awards.

Posted by:

You know, I’ve been terrible remiss with my blog here, mea culpa. In my defense I’ve been working flat out on a new book called The Vision, and as the deadline approaches like a grouchy pale rider I’ve become more insular and slightly frothy at the mouth. But it was with the greatest of pleasure that I drifted into the Westbury yesterday to enjoy the experience of Undertow making the  Irish Book Awards shortlist for crime novel of ...
