Last week I met a Beadle. I was the guest speaker at the Ladies’ Banquet for the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners (WCEC) at the Stationers’ Hall near St Paul’s Cathedral. The magnificent Hall, dating from 1670, has been good to me; it was there that I received The People’s Prize for Fiction in 2010. I was invited to the Banquet because the Mistress Angie Kay, partner of Master, Philip Morrish, is a fan of my detective duo Stella and Jack.

“Don’t you know, you can’t go home again,” as Thomas Wolfe was famously warned, but I have done so, for my writerly sins, returning at the age of thirty-five with my young family to the small rural community in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, where I grew up, to work as a journalist and writer. Over the past seven years, I’ve written six novels and still work part-time as a reporter. Along the way, I’ve had many sleepless nights and anxious hours mapping out my fictional landscape. Little did I know when I started on this journey that the past is a tougher assignment for a journalist than any war-torn hotspot around the globe.
