About the Author


Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?

The book is about me. When I was 15 I met a man and eventually ran away to be with him. I knew that he was wanted by the police but had no idea that he had escaped from Crumlin Road prison. We then became acquainted with Howard Marks aka Mr Nice. The book is about our lives before I got arrested.

Qn 2: Who do you think would be interested in this book, is it directed at any particular market?

As an autobiography, I think the book appeals to anyone who likes to know what goes on behind closed doors. The fact that Mc Cann and Marks are famous is just an added bonus.

Qn 3: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors, which are your favourite and why?

I like crime stories (surprise, surprise) and read every day. Dean Coontz , James Patterson, Michael Connelly. Amongst my favourite books Love in the time of cholera, A tale of two cities, and more recently where the crawdads sing.

Qn 4: What guidance would you offer to someone new, or trying to enhance their writing?

Get help from someone who knows what they are talking about before you publish your book.

Qn 5: Where can our readers find out more about you, do you have a website, or a way to be contacted?
