I'm delighted to be doing a WEEK LONG INTENSIVE CRIME FICTION COURSE in August at the Irish Writers Centre. Please don't let the scary eyes put you off.

The course will be suitable for all writers interested in the genre, including those who have done introductory classes before!!

Last gig before I go into writing hibernation, and if last month's Staccato event in Toner's was anything to go by, this should be a cracker of an event. Hope you see many of you there on the 30th - Toner's Baggot Street, 7.30 p.m. Admission FREE



Master Class


Dublin Book Festival






Irish Georgian Society, 58 South William Street, Dublin 2.


Time: 1.00pm-2.00pm

 15th November 2015

Louise Phillips, Alex Barclay, Jarlath Gregory and Jason Johnson



Join us for an afternoon discussion on one of literature’s most popular genres with some of Ireland's best crime writers. Vanessa Fox-O'Loughlin, literary talent scout and publishing consultant from The Inkwell Group and Writing.ie, will delve into how the authors create their characters and develop their stories. 

There's lots happening as part of Culture Night on Friday 18th September, but please drop into The Irish Landmark Trust’s Georgian Townhouse, at 25 Eustace Street, Temple Bar, from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. to hear readings from Alex Barclay, myself and perhaps a few others.
