Over the summer, I had the pleasure of visiting Farrell & Nephew Bookshop in Newbridge, County Kildare and to chat with Dermot, Maeve and the lovely staff there. Established on the Main street over 60 years ago, this eclectic store also specialises in local interest and history of the area. Now that the schoolbook buying frenzy has subsided, drop in and browse their shelves – and you might even find a copy of LADY BETH there!


Signed copies of LADY BETH are now in stock.

Farrell and Nephew Books are open from Monday to Saturday from 9:00 am to 6:00pm | Phone 045 431708 |

LADY BETH Wins an Eric Hoffer Book Award!

And the results are in! LADY BETH is the 1st Runner-Up in the Crime/Mystery Category and has received an Eric Hoffer Book Award!

To say that I am thrilled is putting it mildly!

Thanks so much to the judges and organisers at the #hofferawards and to everyone for the good vibes!
