My online presence has all but disappeared for the last couple of weeks – why you might ask (or not)!

Well, I haven’t gone on a wild adventure around the world, unless you include fictional worlds. Yes, I’m back writing, hibernating in my attic bedroom, just me, my keyboard, and the unfolding world of my next novel THE DOLL’S HOUSE, another psychological crime thriller, which many of you, (not a word of a lie) are telling me they are dying to get their hands on:-)

As with RED RIBBONS, there are storyboards already, and I’ll put some pics below, because I know you love them.



So what’s the news on the RED RIBBONS front?????

I’m delighted that Hughes and Hughes booksellers have chosen RED RIBBONS as their Parent’s Choice for the months of October/November of The Irish Parent Magazine.

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

You can read ‘The Road to Publication’ written for South Dublin County Library HERE

RED RIBBONS has also been chosen as the Pavilion Shopping Centre  Virtual Bookclub choice for October.

Also watch out for articles in the Senior Times and Spectrum in November.

And if you’re out and about in Tallaght over the next while, pick up the free issue magazine INTALLAGHT, who have been brilliant support for RED RIBBONS.

Delighted to announce that South Dublin Libraries will be including yours truly on their wall of Library Champions, alongside Colum McCann, John Boyne, President Michael D Higgins, and Claire Hennessy.

In the meantime, you can check out all breaking news on www.louise-phillips.com or email me at phillips.louisem0@gmail.com

Next week in Crimescene, the wonderful Joe Mc Coubrey will be reviewing Snakes & Ladders by Sean Slater – Not to be missed!!!

And FINALLY if any of you are still looking to pick up a copy of RED RIBBONS, you can order online through Easons HERE, or via Amazon HERE 



Latest Amazon 5 STAR Review

“Phillips is a new writer in the field, and up there with Rankin, Rendell and all the others. Living in Ireland, I have bought other local Irish-based murder mysteries before and realised why they weren’t on top ten lists of bestsellers. The same can’t be said for this new writer – loved it and couldn’t put it down till I had finished. It holds its own with the international ‘biggies’ and it’s great to be able to feel so proud that ‘one of our own’ is in there at that level. Beautiful writing, great twists in the plot and keeps you turning the pages throughout.” READ MORE HERE

RED RIBBONS has been getting rave reviews, especially for the insight it offers into the emotions of a mother who has lost a child.” – Joe Duffy Irish Mail on Sunday“With overtones of Sophie Hannah and Tana French, Louise Phillips is a supremly talented writer.” Ciara Doorly Hachette
