Help support my Upcoming Research Trip To Ireland!

So I’ve started a little last-minute¬†GoFundMe campaign to support my upcoming research trip to Ireland! It’s just a small amount to help make the trip a little bit easier and stress-free. The money I raise will assist me in my travel costs whilst on the ground in Ireland, including public transport, food, and accommodation.

My first trip to Ireland in 2012, when I was inspired to set my crime novels on the Emerald Isle!

In March 2017 I am traveling to Ireland to perform research for my first crime novel, tentatively titled The Hunter. Over three weeks I will be spending time in Dublin and Galway scouting for locations for my novel and conducting research into the Garda Siochana police force. The money I raise through my campaign will assist me in my travel costs whilst on the ground in Ireland, including public transport, food, and accommodation. I will be leaving for my trip on Sunday 5th of March, and returning to Australia on the 29th.

I have been working on this series of books for ten years, and it has been a long-awaited goal to travel to Ireland to perform this research. I would be SO thankful for this money, as it would allow me to do as much research as possible during my time in Ireland.

Thank-you so much for your support! Please share this campaign with your friends and contacts to help spread the word!
