Did Nidge break the mould of the good/bad guy in LOVE/HATE?

So here's me with Nidge getting up close and personal in today's IRISH MAIL ON SUNDAY..."I know detectives who won't watch Love/Hate because it's simply too close to the day job, and others who say it's brilliant because it's as near to what's happening on the streets as you can get.."

Crime Fiction Writing at the Irish Writers' Centre

And so another 8 weeks of crime fiction writing and work-shopping has come to an end, and what a terrific group!

We had lots of fun, but we also worked hard, and I'm delighted to say that the combined word count for the 8 weeks came to 378,000 - or the size of 4 novels!!

I wish all of them a fantastic writing journey!

For anyone interested in crime fiction writing, it will all start again in February!
