Back to the origins!*

I haven’t paid much attention to this blog thingy over the last few while. I’ve been scribbling away in different areas, trying to write short pithy accounts about my own life but being more and more drawn back to the mythical age of heroes, whether it be Greek, Roman, or, inevitably, Celtic.

Anyway, I wrote about the Champion’s Portion and the Elopement of Deirdre earlier on in this blog as well as the courtship of Emer, and I decided to put them all in the context of a longer picture, presenting chapters of events, as it were, through the persona of a major player be it male or female in the overall picture.

Currently, as I shuffle character and episodes, I may now designate them as, retrospectively, 7 for Deirdre, 8 for Emer and 9 for the Champion’s Portion although this may change later on. Breoga kicks off the sequence and is followed by 2 for Cathbad.

For readers who already may have read Raiding Cuailgne / Cooley back in 2016 these character headed chapters, from both before, during and after the timeframe of my novel, will reveal new insights and details, previously unknown of the prophecies inherent in the myths.

  • I first wrote a book about Celtic heroes and then started this Blog thingy to promote it – and myself.. That was more than six years ago now and in that time, my book has faded into the electronic blackness somewhere in a void but the blog thingy has grown and changed and transformed into multiple lives of its own, But now, here I am back writing the same stuff that gave rise to the blog thingy in there first place! Going back to where it all started. Does that make sense?

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.
