My crime story "Toraloo" over at Thrillers, Killers -n- Chillers

Started doing a jig when I got an email this morning that my crime short story "Toraloo" was now showing over at Thrillers,Killers-n-Chillers. If you would like to give it a read, click HERE


  1. Great, Sean. I'll check it out when I get a chance later.

  2. Nice work, mate. Left a comment over there. Googled Toraloo (A new word to me.) but google had it as Tooraloo. I'm guessing the words are related, with the lullaby thing.

    Well done, mate.

  3. And what a stonker it is too!

    I must confess (to Detective Barber) that I hadn't a clue about Toraloo (hey, that counts as poetry dunnit?).

    I thought it was a toilet for a conservative MP. No? Okay, I'll get me coat...

  4. Seana- I hope you enjoy it and get the tongue-in-cheek Irish Nationalist theme of it.

    Dave- Good call on the title, It comes from James Joyce's "Ulysses"

    "'Toraloo,' Lenehan said, "'see you later.'"

    Col- Thanks for posting the story on TKnC and I got your joke, very clever!

  5. Just checked out the story and it's class. I'd read a full story with these guys in it.
    Well done.

  6. Another winner, Sean, just brilliant.

    And thank you so much for the review of my wee effort over at Smashwords. You're an absolute star!

  7. Great story! You have such a strong voice in your pieces, and you built some really nice tension. Of course, I loved the Irish teasers all the way through.

    I still can't believe there was no Jameson. Bet they didn't have any Guinness either.

  8. I left you comment there. Your stories always me squirm SPR! BTW- I purchased MindJacker, I've got a list on my reader before I get to it, but it shouldn't be too long before I do. ;-)

  9. TF- Thanks for the read man. I think most writers always keep their characaters in mind for mayeb bigger things someday.

    Julie- My pleasure as always. If I like something, I'm going to tell anyone who will listen about it. If not, I say nothing.

    Laurita- Thanks for taking the time to read and I'm glad you dug it. Bushmills was not an option, or Harp ;)

    Jodi- I def go for the squirm factor, if nothing else. Too kind of you to take on Mindjacker. I hope you find it at least entertaining.
