It’s Coole! The autograph tree.

The autograph tree

The autograph tree

Coole Park that is.  The home of Lady Gregory, patroness to many of Ireland’s famous writers. This is the autograph tree. I thought it was appropriate, though somewhat presumptuous, to have my picture taken here.

George Bernard Shaw, J.M. Synge, Sean O’Casey and, of course, William Butler Yeats all spent time in this garden. Who knows what inspiration came of it?

Ireland’s beauty and her people have been an inspiration to me as well. In my novel, Selkie’s Song, now available in the Amazon Kindle store, I hope to have captured some of the legend, mystery, and romance of Ireland’s west counties.

A writer’s day

Boats in Portmagee harbor, Portmagee, Co. Kerry, Ireland

I’ve been “mind surfing” lately. My muse can’t settle on a story. I’ve two books half written and keep going back and forth from one to the other. Today I had a plan…but mid-cappucino my plan changed. I’m working on a romantic comedy titled Rosy Again. It’s fun…as a comedy certainly should be! So, if you like Irish stories, tales of the sea, quirky and free spirited characters and a twist of an ending…keep watching here for my progress on Rosy Again.
