Photos from Dublin Writing Events

A selection of photos with writers, from all genres, that I have had the privilege to meet.

I admire them all, not only for for their work, but also for their attitude and their willingness to help fellow writers.

And lots more to be added soon, I hope!

Book Reviews: Red Ribbons

Red Ribbons
by Louise Phillips

Not a review – yet – but I guarantee that from the snippets I have had the pleasure to read, this book will be one, that like me, you’ll be rushing out to buy.

If you don’t believe me, then let me whet your appetite with not one, but two fabulous trailers . . .

And the good news is, you don’t have long to wait.  
 
 
  
Red Ribbons will be launched, by Crime Editor of The Sunday World, Niamh O’Connor at:
 
6.30pm
on Wednesday 5th September
Hughes & Hughes, St Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre.
 

THE SERIAL KILLER:
A missing schoolgirl is found buried in the Dublin Mountains, hands clasped together in prayer, two red ribbons in her hair. Twenty-four hours later, a second schoolgirl is found in a shallow grave … her body identically arranged.
A hunt for the killer is on.
 

THE CRIMINAL PSYCHOLOGIST:
The police call in profiler Dr Kate Pearson to get inside the mind of the murderer before he strikes again. But the more Kate discovers about the killings, the more it all feels terrifyingly familiar . . .

THE ACCUSED WOMAN:
As the pressure to find the killer intensifies there’s one vital connection to be made. . . Ellie Brady, a mother institutionalised fifteen years earlier for the murder of her twelve-year-old daughter. She stopped talking when everyone stopped listening.
 
THE BAD MAN IS EVERYWHERE … BUT CAN YOU SEE HIM …
