Today's Irish Examiner (Saturday, 29th April) are running an excerpt of my novel, Dead House, which should give it some decent exposure around the country. Even better, the piece is also freely available online, so the boundaries get pushed.
This extract (a decent-sized snippet) gives a good flavo... Read more of this blog post »

In "The Magic Pouch," I wanted to bring some of the familiars such as dragons, witches and wizards, but it was important to me that they have a twist.

A gut-wrenching flash of memory flooded Louis’ head; powerful enough that it forced him to reach for the wall of the nearest building, or risk collapsing onto the sidewalk.


The throng of pedestrians ambling by gave him a wide berth, most picking up their pace.  Some carried looks of worr... Read more of this blog post »
