'Excellent... this is a worthy page-turner' - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Breeda Looney tells herself she's happy with her life in a remote Irish fishing village.

Sure, there are days she talks to no one but the cat, her panic attacks have become public spectacles, and crabby Aunt Nora considers her a total waste of skin...

But could one lie from her childhood change everything?

Breeda is about to stumble upon an old family secret never meant to see the light of day. Her beloved father, said to have died when Breeda was a child, might actually still be alive.

But secrets rarely exist alone.

And as Breeda digs up the family dirt to find her long-lost daddy, she quickly realizes she's just opened the biggest can of worms imaginable...

Breeda Looney steps forth. But what on earth is she about to discover?

Heartwarming and quirky, darkly funny and at times deeply moving, Breeda Looney Steps Forth follows one woman's quest to find her truth and, ultimately, her place in the world. Full of colorful characters and brimming with surprisingly tender moments, this touching tale from Ireland reminds us of the contradictions and complexities that make us all human.

About the Author

Oliver Sands was born in Northern Ireland (during interesting times) and managed to maintain his sanity by escaping into the works of fiction his parents kept in their modest bookcase. It was there he first discovered his love of character and story.

Several years after graduating he decided to ignore his aversion to heat and Vegemite and made the move to Sydney. He returns to Ireland when he can and would like to grow old in Donegal.

Breeda Looney Steps Forth is his debut novel.
