When Kyle’s wife Hannah goes missing, the whole town is out in force to try to find her. One person knows where she is. One person is keeping a secret.
Detective Inspector Simon Peters and Detective Kerry Lawlor have been brought in to investigate the case but Hannah has left no traces and Kyle has no clues.
Local Belfast resident Julia Matthews joins the #FindHannah campaign and becomes friendly with Kyle, sympathising with his tragedy. As Julia becomes more involved in the case than she bargained for, she begins to uncover more secrets than the Police ever could. Julia was only trying to help but has she become drawn into a web of mystery that she can’t escape?
1. Do you always take a book/e-reader wherever you go?
I do indeed! I have the Kindle app and the Audible app on my phone so I always have an e-book or audiobook to hand!
2. Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?
I want to say the ‘bad one’ as though I’m rebellious and daring. But really when it came down to it, I’d want my character to be the nice one who helps everyone out at the end!
3. Where can I find you when you are reading?
Lying on my bed with my two kitty cats curled up at my feet.
4. Where can I find you when you are not writing/reading?
Out for a walk in the park – it’s great for clearing the head!
5. Can you walk past a bookstore without going inside?
Absolutely not! It’s always nice to have a dander around a bookshop, to look at all those fresh new lovely covers!
6. What are you most proud of?
The four books I’ve had published and the three cats I’ve taken care of J
7. What goes through your mind when you hold your new book in your hands for the first time?
It’s a wonderful feeling – not just the sense of accomplishment for having seen a project from start to finish – but it’s also a sense of relief – that all the edits are over and it’s finally out there!
8. What piece of advice would you give to aspiring writers?
Set yourself a small goal each day. For example, sit down and have one session where you look at characters. Or one session where you draft one chapter. As long as you finish that session, you can give yourself a pat on the back and know that you are doing your best to work towards your dreams.
9. Who would you like/have liked to interview?
Marian Keyes! I fell in love with her writing voice ever since her first novel “Rachel’s Holiday”. I think we have a ton of things in common and I think she’d be wonderfully funny and easy to talk to.
10. When and where do you prefer to write?
In the morning at my desk in my home office. Morning is definitely best for me because my brain is sharper (after that first cup of coffee of course)! I used to write in a coffee shop that had a lovely view of a water fountain. I miss that coffee shop but it’s far too easy to work in my home office now!
Thank you, Rose McClelland
