"Cead mile failte!" Welcome!

August 16, 2015

Thank you for visiting my new web page. I will be shifting my blog from Goodreads to this site. My new site will give me a better opportunity to serve my fans and let them know what is new with not just the Galloglass Series but also my writing in general. I will continue to comment from time to time on various subjects pertaining to the series but I also intend to extend that to other subjects that I write about. My hope is that you will be enlightened and entertained and that you will continue to enjoy my small corner of the writing world.

    Loved all three of the Galloglass series to date. You've got a real good character development with Ronan and plenty of scope for further adventures based on the hints of his doings mentioned as he tells us his life story. Keep them coming!

    Thank you and you are correct, there is plenty of material for several more books. We will just have to see how much adventure one man can pack into a life. Somehow I think that it will be quite a bit. Have a good day,

    Timeline for the release of "And Behold a Pale Horse" is sometime in late May/ early June. I will be posting an excerpt from the book here in the next month or so.

    I just finished reading the Galloglass series. Very good read. I hope there will be more to come from Ronan.

    Book Four is definitely a go. However due to some unforeseen delays, I probably will not publish until August/September. Thank you for your interest and support.

    Hi there; I just finished Book Two, and now I'm onto The Fall of Acre - can't wait to get started, but I needed to break off for a moment and act like a gushy fan: I was very glad to have stumbled upon your work, intrigued by the title "Galloglas". Having read all kinds of works about the Crusades, and more particularly, the Templars, I was puzzled by that term. Irish/Scottish/Gaelic warriors of the late Middle Ages - fantastic! New Knights that I had never heard of - wonderful! How can I have been unfamiliar with Gallowglass(es?) Great characters which bring the reader along with them to the intriguing Levant, fraught with honourable heroes in unexpected places. Thank you so very much for bringing this marvelous warrior to life. And, I wish you continued success with your writing career.

    Thank you for the kind words. If all goes well there should be a book four for you to read sometime in January. This storyline is far from over, there should be several more to come as well. Merry Christmas!

    I am a big fan of historical fiction and this series is one of my favorite. To be honest, I was checking the kindle store every so often this winter for any new releases. Needless to say, I look forward to the fourth book in the series. Keep up the good work.

    Rick, The book is in the hands of my editor as I write this. I am hoping to have it back within the week. ETA should not be much longer once I get it back. I will announce it's publication on my blog site on Amazon, here at the Guild and on Goodreads as soon as it is up. Thank you for your patience and interest.
