Join us at Looking Glass Books on 26th February from 6.30pm to celebrate the launch of R.L McKinney’s brilliant debut novel
Blast Radius follows Sean McNicol as he leaves the Marines stationed in Afghanistan to return home, bringing the ghost of his best friend Mitch and memories of his own traumatic experiences with him.
"A sensitive, stylish and loving portrayal" - Aifric Campbell
Taking Sean’s perspective as he searches for meaning and belonging, McKinney sensitively handles mental health issues and the struggle for identity of those who have endured conflict, in a book that is both moving and timely.

In various incarnations she has been a bartender, horse trainer, teacher, researcher, community development practitioner and local government dogsbody.
