This beautiful historic building, the Central Library in Belfast, is now home to my novels. They’ve just been added to the catalogue and were put out on the shelves today.

Having my books in Libraries NI is a major milestone for me. I was used to sending legal deposit copies to the British Library, Bodleian Library, National Library of Scotland, Cambridge University Library, Trinity College Dublin and the National Library of Wales, where they are made available in the reading rooms, but to have them accessible for loan by the general public in Northern Ireland is very exciting.

It’s also a lovely moment when you check into the online catalogue and find out one of your books has already been borrowed! ☺️
