Vanessa launches ‘Lit­tle Bones’ book

Bray People - - NEWS -

Au­thor Sam Blake launched her book ‘Lit­tle Bones’ last Thurs­day evening at the Royal St Ge­orge Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire.

Sam Blake is the pen name for Kil­macanogue res­i­dent Vanessa O’Lough­lin.

Vanessa is the founder of The Inkwell Group pub­lish­ing con­sul­tancy and the hugely pop­u­lar na­tional writ­ing re­sources web­site Writ­ing.ie. She is Ire­land’s lead­ing lit­er­ary scout who has as­sisted many award win­ning and best­selling au­thors to pub­li­ca­tion.

Vanessa has been writ­ing fic­tion since her hus­band set sail across the At­lantic for eight weeks and she had an idea for a book. Her book has gone straight to num­ber one in Ea­sons since its re­lease last week.

For fans of Alex Bar­clay and Ni­amh O’Con­nor, Lit­tle Bones in­tro­duces Cathy Con­nolly, a bright young hero­ine set to take the world of crime fic­tion by storm. 24-year-old Garda Cathy Con­nolly might be a fear­less kick-box­ing cham­pion but when she dis­cov­ers a baby’s bones con­cealed in the hem of a wedding dress, the case be­comes per­sonal.

For artist Zoe Grant, the bones are an­other mys­te­ri­ous twist in her mother’s dis­ap­pear­ance. Then her grand­mother, head of the Grant Valen­tine de­part­ment store em­pire is found dead, and a trail of se­crets is un­cov­ered that threat­ens to shake a dy­nasty.

In a story that moves from London’s East End to the Las Vegas mafia, one thing is cer­tain - for Cat, life will never be the same again.
