Something New

I haven’t been doing much with this blog recently. I have been tinkering around and messing with parameters but don’t actually feel I have achieved anything new. So, no new curves except … well, here is something new, for me, anyway.

I’ve made an audio recording of a chapter from my book. No doubt I will aspire to vblogs (shudder!) at some point but here, for the very first time I put my voice on cyber space.

The promiscuous and vindictive Medb, queen of Connachta, incensed by her husband Ailil’s claim that he alone had made her rich and powerful, insists on a full inventory of their possessions to prove, finally, who is the richest.

Ailil possesses a semi-divine white bull, a descendent of the ancient gods of the Sídhe, and of the Tuatha de Dammam. Its only match, the Donn Cúailnge or the Brown Bull of Cúailnge, can be found in the kingdom of the Ulaidh.

Chapter 19, beins with mac Roth, Medb and Ailil’s steward, ordered to tally all their possessions and to report any discrepancies.

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.
