I like fast cars, beautiful women and great sex.
I hate drugs. I can’t stand the idiots who take them and I loathe the bastards who supply them. Drugs cost me my whole world.
I wear many faces; right now I’m Doctor Lucas Callaghan and I’ll be him until I get my revenge.
My real name will be the last words to ever pass their lips.
I hate my name, Aoife Brennan, as soon as people hear it they treat me differently because of my father.
Medical school isn’t my dream, it’s his. But, it’s the least I owe him after everything I’ve done. I’m trying to be a good girl, but even good girls make mistakes.
He’s lying about who he is, she’s kidding herself about who she can be. They’re polar opposites with one very big secret in common.
Plotter or Pantser?
I’ve been cursed with an inability to plot. I try, but that usually means I pour A LARGE glass of wine, grab a pen and my notepad, and scribble down every random thought about the story that is floating around my head. I come back to it the next day with fresh eyes (and a mild hangover) and see where I’m at. Some of my notes I’ll use but some I’ll scratch my head and wonder ‘what the heck was I thinking?’
Honestly? I’ll always have an idea of where I want the story to go, but I like to let my characters make their own way there rather than me dragging them along. I usually have certain plot points and scenarios that I want/need to happen but I leave it up to my characters how we reach those points and what happens when we do. Sometimes a character will say or do something unexpected and that’ll add a plot twist that I didn’t see coming. I love when that happens. I like my books to be an adventure, not just for the reader but for me too. I think if I knew too much about the story before I started I’d get bored half way through. And, I’m sure that would be obvious to my readers.
I’m a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl. Organised isn’t even in my vocabulary. Just ask my kids. I’ve been known to forget to give them lunch when I’m in the writing cave. A banana and some chocolate totally counts as a balanced diet, right? *sigh*
So, I suppose I was never going to be anything other than a panster. Maybe one day I’ll be organised enough to have a fancy spread sheet instead of a messy brain storm scribbled on a page. But that will probably be the day robots are invited who can make the kids’ lunches for me.

The Harte Series went on to become a #1 international bestseller.
