Deirdre Kinahan: "Hue and Cry is an attempt to look
at grief and the effect it can have on you. I wrote it from my own experience
of my wonderful mother's death. Grief shapes a person and becomes so much
a part of them that I wanted to write about it. Damian never truly grieves
for his mother who died when he a child and that shaped his destiny. Grief
is something we all experience and, like all highly charged situations, it
is ripe for laughter and tears.
I enjoy writing about people who reside in different social worlds and how they communicate and misunderstand. I also like to write about friendship and how it flourishes despite all obstacles."
