An unromantic Irish story

I am impressed by the number of Irish books of fiction out there and astonished by all the romance I must have missed out on in my youth. Perhaps I was not tuned in to the realities of Irish life but there was a dark cloud over  my country through the mid 20th century. So I have the nerve to attempt to  show another reality in a fictional story founded on facts and developed by imagination. It is Children of the Cromlech

  2. Many thanks, Peter, for all your patient help in turning a draft into a BOOK. You took me on a journey. The destination is unknown but I am having fun traveling.

  3. Still fumbling and bumbling around in this blog world. Nothing important to report but that does not stop a confirmed blogger! I am getting encouraging responses from readers of Children of the Cromlech – enough to keep hope alive. Paula Leyden, writer of that wonderful book, The Butterfly Heart, has promised a review. Peter Schwartz loved it. It appears that a book by a man can be enjoyed by men and yet bring strong women to tears. Yeah, I am pleased with and proud of my effort.
