• The Fact and the Fiction

    ** SPOILERS AHEAD** If you don’t want spoilers for Cronin’s Key, please don’t read 🙂 Cronin’s Key has been out for a little while now and I wanted to shed some light on research; the fact and the fiction. As all writers know (or at least they should) research is a huge part of any story. And out of all my books (all 20 of them), I think I have done more research for Cronin’s Key than any other.

      The Cast and Crew With release day just 9 days away, I’d like to introduce you to the cast and crew of Cronin’s Key.
