Liffey Rivers: Mystery of the Winking Judge



 There is more intrigue in London than 13-year-old Irish dancer Liffey Rivers could have ever imagined! How will she tell the smug-looking
security guard at the National Portrait Gallery that something is
WRONG with one of the portraits of Queen Elizabeth I, hanging in the
Tudor Gallery?
Buy the Book!

And how can she even pretend she is ready to dance next week at an Irish dance competition in County Sligo, Ireland?

And why is the Irish judge at the prizewinner Jig stage winking at her?  Liffey has seen those eyes before...


Brenna Briggs is a former actress and documentary film director- producer.

She writes The Liffey Rivers Irish Dancer Mysteries in Sligo, Ireland, and Sharon, Wisconsin.  She is presently working on an historical novel for young adults about early romantic period author Sydney Owenson, who penned
The Wild Irish Girl and later became Lady Morgan, the first woman in Ireland to receive an author's pension. 

Briggs writes about this remarkable woman from a unique vantage point, as she has often visited Longford House, the ancient estate where Owenson penned much of The Wild Irish Girl.

 Brenna Briggs was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, into an  Irish American family where she thought cookies with green icing on Saint Patrick's Day was the best thing about being Irish.
