Someplace Else

VERSE 1
Marble halls and diamond ceilings
Still yearning for those feelings

Still can’t find the glue for my heart
Roasted beast and potato salad
Buttered greens, I must have them
A temporary fix for my mental tricks
Back to feeling down in the sunset town

Lately I’ve been very concerned about building a network of readers for my books, however, I haven’t made my novels available to the public yet.

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
