I set off, all gung ho, the other day to redesign my website. Not one hundred percent sure what I actually intended doing, but I knew that I wanted to do something.
Spend time doodling in a notebook – yep, pen and paper – drawing diagrams of how I’d like my page(s) to look and uploading new photos to illustrate my topics and drawing links between posts and categories or pages or …something and as it turns out, after about two days messing around with customising and tweaking here and there, I have no idea where things stand now. I might even have made things worse. I want to direct all my posts on Celtic Trivia, Book Stuff and Learning Curves to have their own featured image and for each post to slip nicely onto its Page categorisation.
I just don’t seem to be able to do it. Half the time I can’t even access the dashboard to adjust settings and so on.
I am Irish, currently living in West Australia. I have a degree in Old & Middle English, Lang & Lit and, despite having worked in Kuwait, Italy, Malaysia, USA, Brunei, Australia and Hong Kong over the last 40 years, I have a strong interest in Ireland’s ancient pre-history and the heroes of its Celtic past as recorded in the 12th and late 14th century collection of manuscripts, collectively known as The Ulster Cycle.
I enjoy writing historical novels, firmly grounded in a well-researched background, providing a fresh and exciting look into times long gone. I have an empathy with the historical period and I draw upon my experiences of that area and the original documents.
I hope, by providing enough historical “realia” to hook you into a hitherto unknown – or barely glimpsed - historical period.
