So, this week has been a bit mad. Lots going on with the family and WiP totally being neglected, even though it calls to me daily.
I had a lovely evening at Malone Book Group. They had selected Little Bird as their summer read, and invited me along to discuss the book, and talk about my writing process. They were such a lovely, engaged and switched on group. Maria, our host, served delicious pumpkin soup. I discovered you must make your soup with edible pumpkins, not the ones we carve for lanterns. Who knew? Have a look at the pics and see Maria’s beautifully set table.
Last weekend saw the launch of the amazing Noireland festival, held in the Europa Hotel. I was lucky enough to attend a few events including a panel discussion on identity featuring Adrian McKinty, Stella Duffy, Abir Mukherjee and Louise Welsh. I asked Adrian what his protagonist Sean Duffy would make of modern day Northern Ireland, and he said Duffy would most definitely approve. We’ve come along way from the bombs and bullets.
I also manage to meet Line of Duty actor, Adrian Dunbar.
