Irish Book Award Shortlist

I was beyond thrilled in October 2018 to find out that One Click had been shortlisted for an Irish Book Award – it was in the Crime category along with incredibly talented writers Liz Nugent, Dervla McTiernan, Jo Spain, William Ryan and Steve Cavanagh.

It’s a cliché but it’s also true – for me, the winning was in the shortlisting. A true career highlight, across both careers.
