More About the Author
The single for 'A Place Somewhere' (Words by R J Samuel, Music/Performance by Sharon Murphy) is available on the Amazon mp3 store.
R J Samuel was born in Nigeria, to Indian parents from Kerala. She grew up in different parts of Nigeria with a brief stint in boarding school in the Nilgiri Hills in India and occasional summers in Kerala, London, and New York. She moved to Ireland at 17 to complete her medical studies and vividly remembers the shock of arriving at Galway Train Station on an icy October night. Despite that traumatic first meeting, she fell in love with Galway and has remained there since, apart from a 3-year episode in the southwest of France. She is an Irish citizen and now considers herself almost Irish as well as almost Indian.
She has been writing creatively for years, apart from her period in France where she wrote nothing creative, probably because she was running a restaurant-bar despite having a background in Medicine (she is a qualified medical doctor) and IT (she has a Masters in IT) and absolutely no background in restaurants, apart from eating in them.
Her first novel, 'Heart Stopper,' was published in February 2012 and her second novel, 'Falling Colours - The Misadventures of a Vision Painter,' in June 2012. Her third novel, Casting Shadows - The Further Misadventures of a Vision Painter, was published in January 2013. Her novels are set in the West of Ireland, in Galway and Connemara, and also in Kerala, India.
Her story 'Helmets' was shortlisted for the 2011 Over the Edge 'New Writer of the Year Competition' and she was the only entrant to have both her fiction and her poetry long-listed for the Doire Press '1st Annual International Fiction and Poetry Chapbook Competition' in January 2012. Her fiction entry, 'The Vision Painter,' went on to be shortlisted for this competition and was the basis for her second novel, 'Falling Colours - The Misadventures of a Vision Painter.' Her story 'Parallel Lives' was shortlisted for the 2012 Over the Edge 'New Writer of the Year Competition'.

This won't be done without a few heart-stopping twists and more-or-less innocent casualties.
... even had to check my own heartbeat at the end, as the denouement unfold! :o
I'm getting to love Ireland more and more with each of this author's books.
Heart Stopper ticks all the right boxes for me.
If you love mystery then read this book. If you love twists and turns that keep you guessing to the end read this book. If you are not already passionate about the Irish landscape you will be when you read this book. If you are a romantic read this book. If you yearn for strong characters and dialogue that leaps off the page, read this book!
There are already many excellent reviews about Heart Stopper on Amazon and Goodreads. There is little more I can add to the eloquent, well-expressed reviews except to say buy the book! You won't regret it...
After reading this novel , you have to ask- why has it not been done before? The ingredients have always been there, but in this novel there is a fresh approach to combining them in a manner which traverses genres, refusing to be narrowly pigeonholed.
There's plenty nitty detail here too for tech fans giving a fascinating insight into the medical pacemaker device world.Glimpses of Indian culture and a changing Ireland enrich the backdrop to this thoroughly enjoyable, unputdownable novel.
It is hoped it is the first of many to come.
If you are like me you will be hooked by RJ Samuel's writing. She is a perceptive, painterly story teller who continues to write rich, beautifully crafted, creative novels that satisfy both intellect and heart. I have just downloaded her most recent, 'A Place Somewhere', and can't wait to start reading!
Priya hasn't had a very easy life. Her parents were quite pushy and they never really accepted the fact that Priya is a lesbian either.
Priya's life had spiralled out of control a couple of years earlier. She was just beginning to get her life back to some semblance of order, when she meets a woman on a night out. Unfortunately for Priya, she'd had so much to drink, she couldn't remember much about it.
When Priya woke up in a strange apartment the following morning, she found her boss, Dr Daniel Fairing, an American cardiologist dead. She had no recollection of how she got there, panicked and ran.
Daniel's family don't believe that he died of a heart attack. His mother Catherine and sister Reyna, enlist Priya's help to investigate into his death.
Priya slowly begins to uncover secrets appertaining to the new wireless pacemaker technology that Daniel and his partners had developed. Priya also uncovers facts that proves she had unwittingly been involved with the earlier research, that could have far reaching consequences for not only herself, but many other people. Along the way, Priya uncovers secrets and lies about her past, secrets that could change Priya's outlook on life now. Priya has to uncover and unravel the mystery from her past research to find the answers she is looking for. But Priya is being pursued by an unknown enemy. Will she be able to solve the mystery before she becomes another victim? Or will her pursuers catch up with her and force her into helping them?
Meanwhile Priya and Reyna are feeling a mutual attraction between them.Read more ›
