Another fantastic review for RED RIBBONS from the Senior Times Magazine  

" the book flows along at a cracking pace. Characters well developed and Phillips herself is fearless. She is not afraid to explore evil, its pervasive nature and also, what it's like to look out at the world from such a vantage point. I've a feeling we'll be hearing a lot more from this author."


I'm delighted that Hughes and Hughes booksellers have chosen RED RIBBONS as their Parent's Choice for the months of October/November, again The Irish Parent Magazine is available now..


Keep an eye out also over the next couple of weeks for a 'true life' short story of mine which will appear in the Daily Mail 'You' Magazine published on Saturdays.


Wednesday 14th November, I'll be reading as part of the RED LINE Literary Festival  in Three Voices/Three Forms, at The Loose End Civic Theatre, Tallaght : An Evening with writers Eileen Casey, Colm Keegan & Louise Phillips Book Here

The Road to Publication – Louise Phillips

I stopped writing for 20 years, yet somewhere in the back of my mind, I knew one day I would write again.

When I nervously went to my first creative writing class in Old Bawn Community School in Tallaght, in 2005, my life changed. The class, facilitated by Eileen Casey, was my first tentative step back. That night I realised I would never, ever stop writing again. Driving home from the evening class, my head was alive with words. It was as if someone had opened a door to a room I had nearly forgotten existed, but once I walked inside; I met an old friend who had been waiting patiently for me to return.
