LAST KISS shortlisted in the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards

I was over the moon yesterday to discover that LAST KISS was nominated in the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards in the Crime Fiction Category sponsored by Irish AM. 

It is the ultimate compliment to be included with such high calibre writers as Jane Casey, Stuart Neville, Liz Nugent, Sinead Crowley and Tana French.

It is also particularily special that each of my novels, RED RIBBONS, THE DOLL'S HOUSE and LAST KISS received nominations in this section in 2012, 2013, and 2014 respectfully. 

The public voting is now open, so if you want to cast your can do so HERE

Queens of Crime Fiction - Kildare Readers Festival

It was a great afternoon on Saturday talking with fellow crime writer Niamh O'Connor about true and fictional crime, why women kill, and the challenges in the publishing industry today. Plus, it's always wonderful to get feedback from readers. Thanks to everyone involved with the ‎Kildare Readers Festival‬ 2014, and to all those who attended - Queens of Crime Irish Style!
