Hi, Friends!

There's something special about a military hero, don't you agree? All of that alpha protector instinct and a lot of deadly skills, combined with a world-weary hardness that comes from time spent fighting in a war. Gabriel Noble, the hero of my new release RUN TO YOU is all that and mo... Read more of this blog post »

Wrote some at the pub, just typed it out. Over 200 words... so that's something! I think that was 200 good words too, good stuff. Surprisingly good considering I was half-cut.

Dear Ms. Whitman,

I ran across something in one of my old travel journals yesterday, and it made me think of “The Store.”

I was not yet a published writer when I backpacked through Europe for the second time in 1986. I ran out of money in Paris (which puts me in good company, I suspect), and slept... Read more of this blog post »

Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
