Steve Cavanagh, Brian McGilloway & Michael Russell

Tickets: FREE





No Alibis Bookstore are very pleased to invite to an evening with Steve Cavanagh, Brian McGilloway and Michael Russell on Wednesday 17th May at 7:00PM to celebrate the launch of their new novels. Free tickets are now available, and should be obtained using the EventBrite button below.

Eventbrite - An Evening With Steve Cavanagh, Brian McGilloway and Michael Russell

Steve was born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland. At 18 he moved to Dublin and studied Law, by mistake. Steve had a choice of degree courses at College, either Business & Marketing or Law. He decided to enrol for Business & Marketing, but he got the course timetables mixed up and ended up registering for Law.

“Essentially, I became a lawyer because I joined the wrong queue that day. I suppose it was fate, if you believe in that kind of thing.”

His debut novel, The Defence, is the first in a new, US-based legal thriller series featuring Eddie Flynn, former con-artist turned trial lawyer.

“Eddie Flynn is such an exciting character and I love writing about him. People have asked me if the character is based on me, I suppose there are some similarities but Eddie is better looking and has more hair.” Steve Cavanagh.

The Defence was published in the UK, Japan, Portugal, Italy, Germany and France in 2015. In 2016 it will be published in the US and the Netherlands. Steve was named as one of Amazon's Rising Stars for 2015 and was awarded the Northern Ireland Arts Council's ACES award. The Defence was also nominated for a number of awards including the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger for Thriller of the year 2015. The second Eddie Flynn novel, The Plea, was released to critical acclaim in 2016.

Brian McGilloway is the New York Times bestselling author of the critically acclaimed Inspector Benedict Devlin and DS Lucy Black series. He was born in Derry, Northern Ireland in 1974. After studying English at Queen’s University, Belfast, he took up a teaching position in St Columb’s College in Derry, where he was Head of English until 2013. He will resume teaching in 2015 in Holy Cross College, Strabane.

His first novel, Borderlands, published by Macmillan New Writing, was shortlisted for the CWA New Blood Dagger 2007 and was hailed by The Times as ‘one of (2007’s) most impressive debuts.’ The second novel in the series, Gallows Lane, was shortlisted for both the 2009 Irish Book Awards/Ireland AM Crime Novel of the Year and the Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2010. Bleed A River Deep, the third Devlin novel, was selected by Publishers Weekly as one of their Best Books of 2010.

Brian's fifth novel, Little Girl Lost, which introduced a new series featuring DS Lucy Black, won the University of Ulster's McCrea Literary Award in 2011 and was a New York Times Bestseller in the US and a No.1 Bestseller in the UK. The follow-up novel, Hurt, was published in late 2013 in the UK and Ireland by Constable and Robinson and was published in the USA under the title Someone You Know. The third Lucy Black novel, Preserve the Dead will be published on August 6th 2015 in the UK and Ireland and on August 11th 2015 in the USA, under the title The Forgotten Ones.

In 2014, Brian won BBC NI's Tony Doyle Award for his screenplay, Little Emperors, an award which saw him become Writer In Residence with BBC NI. He currently has a number of screen projects in development with BBC NI.

Michael Russell is a writer with an extensive background in television drama in Britain and Ireland; in particular crime drama, including 'The Bill', 'Between the Lines', 'The Chief', 'Heartbeat', 'Midsomer Murders', 'A Touch of Frost'. He also worked in farming in North Devon and for Yorkshire Television as both a script editor and producer. He is the author of the successful 'Stefan Gillespie' historical detective novels, 'The City of Shadows' and 'The City of Strangers', set in Ireland in the 1930s and 1940s, and in many of the cities that played an important part in the lead up to the Second World War and later in the war itself: Dublin, Danzig, New York, Lisbon, Madrid, Berlin, London, Rome and Vienna. He started writing for television in order to earn enough of a living to write novels, and after many years finally got round to doing what he meant to do in the first place: write novels.

Michael lives in West Wicklow, which is at the heart of the 'Stefan Gillespie' novels, with his family and various animals, not far from where Detective Sergeant Gillespie grew up...
