I have played a part in the production of the RTE documentary A Knock at the Door, to be broadcast on RTE One on Feb. 16 at 6.00 pm. The story is an incredibly moving one and helps demonstrate the horror of terrorism and its long-lasting effect. One not to be missed. http://www.independent.ie/...

I have been writing a scene which includes the description of a man’s hands. It made me think about how little I look at hands, or indeed, if I could recognize my friends from their hands. The old saying goes – I knew it as well as the back of my hand –  but do we really know our own hands? I...

I rarely plan a book in advance,...

The company has obviously done its research – loads of positive  publicity, without the slightest risk of having to give away any beer...

After blowing my own trumpet about how well Piwko’s Proof was selling at Sony Reader store, fate has tripped me up and the book has fallen out of the top 100. Down fifty places in three days. Well, it was nice while it lasted. On the plus side, some of my other titles are holding up very well.An...
