We love the Kate Pearson novels - SAN DIEGO BOOK REVIEW!!

I'm so THRILLED with the San Diego Book Review's high praise for RED RIBBONS.

"Phillips is Ireland's finest mystery writer....her greatest talent, developed through what must have been thousands of hours of dedicated craft, is her ability to write in different voices with each as individual and believable as the others..She has had a remarkably successful career right from the get-go, and every hallmark that exists in her novels is present in Red Ribbons..We love the Kate Pearson novels as will you...."

I feel so lucky working with the amazing team at POLIS BOOKS, and Jason Pinter, for the US publications of both RED RIBBONS and THE DOLL'S HOUSE.

I was thrilled with the cover design of RED RIBBONS (see below) created by the fabulous design cover artist, MIMI BARK, from New York, and even more delighted to hear that she is also currently working on the cover of the upcoming publication of THE DOLL'S HOUSE!!

Actress, Caroline Morahan, is on board too, for the narration of the Audio book, and I can't wait for it all to come together this August!!

In the meantime, it's mood board time....one of my favourite activities!!

Finding a new Favourite Mystery Author - By the Book Review!!

THANK YOU ...BY THE BOOK REVIEW, for this amazing review of Red Ribbons....

"There were few things that content me more in a literary way than finding a new Favourite Mystery Author. I really hadn't had one since Colin Dexter retired from writing the Inspector Morse series....Phillips' greatest talent, developed through what must have been thousands of hours of dedicated craft, is her ability to write in different voices with each as individual and believable as the others....(Red Ribbons) is your joy to discover.."
