Bray Literary Festival & Lady Killers!!


Bray Literary Festival, the brainchild of author Tanya Farrelly and David Butler will take place between the 22nd - 24th September. It promises to be a festival with a difference, with both established and emerging artists - 'One for the many, not for the few...'

In an interview with the Irish Times, Tanya said -  'We are both natural organisers who are passionate about literature and offering support to fellow writers. I noticed the same names were cropping up in Irish literary festivals – and that many talented writers seem unable to break through that wall. Festivals certainly need headliners to attract an audience but we want to offer a broader spectrum. We’re planning a range of events from well-known writers to published writers who get fewer opportunities, to emerging writers who have yet to have their debut published.'

FOR ALL YOU CRIME FICTION LOVERS....I'll be taking part in 'LADY KILLERS' at the festival with the fabulous Arlene Hunt and Sam Blake, on Sunday the 24th September @ 2 p.m. in Bray Town Hall.

Arlene Hunt is the author of eight novels and numerous short stories. She is the co-owner of Portnoy Publishing and a regular contributor and reviewer for RTE’s culture show, Arena. She lives in Dublin and is currently working on her ninth novel. When not working she spends a lot of time running long distance with her GSD, Archer.

Sam Blake is a pseudonym for Vanessa Fox O'Loughlin. She has been writing fiction since 1999 when her husband went sailing across the Atlantic for 8 weeks and she had an idea for a book. Her debut novel, Little Bones, spent eight weeks in the top 10 Irish Times Bestseller list. Vanessa is also the founder of The Inkwell Group publishing consultancy and the Irish national writing resources website Writing.ie. She is a leading literary scout who has assisted many award winning and bestselling authors to publication. 

Louise Phillips, is the author of four bestselling crime novels. She is the winner of numerous literary awards, including Best Irish Crime Novel of the Year. Last year, she was longlisted for the CWA Dagger in the Library, and is the recipient of both art bursaries and residencies for literature. A judge for the EU Literary Award, her debut novel, RED RIBBONS, was published to critical acclaim in the US in 2016. She is currently working on her fifth novel.
