Sportsman. Lover. Bon viviant. Cad. Ross O'Carroll-Kelly is many things to many people. But ten years after he lifted the Leinster Schools Senior Cup, Ireland's most beloved rogue remains one of its most misunderstood figures. His accomplishments on the rugby field - and in the bedroom - remain the stuff of legend, but the truth about him remains hidden by the accretion of myth. Now, for the first time, the lid is lifted on the enigma that is South Dublin's most eligible married man. In more than a hundred interviews with his family and friends - those who've loved him, hated him and slept with him - the first ever composite portrait of the Celtic Tiger's most famous cub emerges. From the mother who didn't want him to the father who wanted him too much, from the friends who shared his misadventures to the women who shared his bed - or, failing that, a back alley or bus shelter - this searingly honest biography fills in all the blanks in the life of the self-styled Cock of Foxrock.

Jesus, it was horrifying. Two men that he didn't know nodded a greeting to Richard as they came out of Ross's office and went towards the elevators. “Richard. We need to talk,” Ross said, as he walked towards him. “Come in.” He stood.

Sleep then My Princess, a chilling fast-paced thriller, set in Arizona, where the desert becomes a place of fear. Losing her husband in a tragic accident seems to be the least of Stephani Robbins problems when she finds herself trapped in a series of unexpected events. A secret ‘admirer’ overwhelms her with creepy presents, recurrent visions of a child she can't recognize, and her struggle to save the life of a loved one puts her in the cross-hairs of a serial killer. When Stephani is abducted and face to face with a killer, she learns alarming secrets about her childhood. She will need all her wits to survive. What some of my beta readers said... "Wow! You've got a thriller with a level of horrific reality here. You take the reader inside a perverted serial killer's head and an innocent woman whose life has been ripped from her and whose present season of recovery is being trespassed. You describe the love of an adoring niece for her mourning auntie and this connects the reader to the prologue and adds another level of emotion to this already captivating plot. What a book!" "I have to say 'wow' because your writing style is so picturesque. You show a every detail to plainly. I was captured right away. The showing is real and to telling, which is a top virtue in any real book. The main character Stephanie has a sassy attitude underneath all of the hurt. Her story is heart breaking and so deep I felt her agony. This is a worthy read."

One seasoned reporter, caught by chance in this maelstrom, attempts making sense of the carnage, though entirely out of his realm. While beginning as a lighthearted lark, what he encounters eventually finds him ruminating on our current worldwide climate, and its parallels to this insane odyssey.
