NORA – TWO SHORTLISTINGS

While I’ve been busy with One Dublin One Book, NORA has been shortlisted for two awards which, obviously, is thrilling.

Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year at Listowel and Irish Novel of the Year at the Dalkey Literary Awards. How is that for fancy? Delighted!!

I’ll be taking part at events at both festivals in June.

NORA SHORTLISTED IRISH BOOK AWARDS

I’m delighted that Seán Rocks and the Arena crew have nominated NORA in the RTÉ Audience Choice Award at the An Post Irish Book Awards. As a big Arena fan, this is such an honour. I’m also honoured that NORA is the only novel on the shortlist.
