Book Banter EP 54: Val Collins Interview

Updated: Feb 24, 2023


Hello Happy People, In today's episode, Dianne is joined by international bestselling author of the Aoife Walsh books, Val Collins. The books in this collection are psychological thrillers and will keep you guessing until the very last page. Val has been an avid reader since she began at age three. She tried writing as a child as well, but her perfectionism stopped her from exploring it. As she grew up, life took a different turn for her career wise and it wasn't until an economic crash in Ireland left Val unemployed that she returned to writing. Now an international bestselling author, Val currently has four titles available in her Aoife Walsh book collection: Girl Targeted, Only Lies Remain, The Silent Speak, and Where Loyalties Lie. Her fifth Aoife Walsh book, Dying To Tell, is set to be released Feb. 28th. If you love thrillers ... don't wait, go listen now! Dianne Val Collins, Author of Dying to Tell (release date Feb. 28th 2023)
