You have to love this review.

July 7, 2014

I get all sorts of reviews, from one star rantings to five star raves. The accepted course of action for an author is that they should not read their reviews. But I don’t know a single author who toes the line on this.
I had to share my latest review from an Amazon reader. It’s so full of humor and energy. Loads of thanks to Susan Lane Shaw for her comments on An Evil Shadow.

Wow! This is a page turner.
It has been a long time since I have had to dim the brightness on my iPad so my husband could sleep as I read on into the night, to learn what came next. Great plot, characters that I came to care about, and worry “might be next”. Thanks to you I have had to nap on several afternoons! Well done.

St. Patrick’s Day – Paper Ghosts Free for a Limited Time

February 26, 2014

Just to inform you that as a St. Patrick’s Day gift to my readers Paper Ghosts will be available free for the next few weeks. It is available from B&N, Apple, Kobo, Smashwords and Sony. Amazon will price match to free at some time, but I can’t say when that will be, though you can just download a mobi file from Smashwords in the interim. It’s a fairly short book (60,000) and has been very popular with Wattpad readers with over 1,000,000 downloads. It has also been voted #1 in its genre at Project Fiction.

A Knock on the Door

The documentary A Knock on the Door was broadcast on Saturday. It tells of the Thomas Niedermayer kidnapping and the tragic aftermath. Very moving, full of compassion and catharsis.

A Knock at the Door

February 5, 2013

I have played a part in the production of the RTE documentary A Knock at the Door, to be broadcast on RTE One on Feb. 16 at 6.00 pm. The story is an incredibly moving one and helps demonstrate the horror of terrorism and its long-lasting effect. One not to be missed.

There is a link to my book included in the show.

One of my books reached a milestone today. Paper Ghosts has been read 1,000,000 times on Wattpad. While by no means my best book, it received a mere two negative comments from the readers. Thanks to all of you. Now if only I had a dollar per read.
