bluestar Confessions of a Fallen Angel winner of Irish Book Award!!!bluestar

Yep, it's true . . . I've won an Irish Book Award. How mad is that? Truly unbelievable and definitely the highlight of an amazing journey that started quite a long time ago now. Thank you so much to everyone that voted for Confessions. Hopefully the award will mean more copies are sold not because I want the royalties, but because I love it when these characters come alive all over again in the heads of new readers. I don't think they want to be pulped just yet. Thanks for your support.



The award was presented to me by 2008 winner Anita Notaro
and shown here with the CEO of International Education Services, John
Treacy

"Dying was the easy bit. It was during my life after death that things started to go wrong. A conspiracy of coincidences perhaps or else maybe some higher power was having a laugh at my expense. But when I returned from the other side I brought something fearful back with me."
