About the Author
I live in Drogheda on the river Boyne in Ireland, a large historic town 30 miles north of Dublin with my wife Sheila. At the end of our street is a massive stone barbican or gatehouse, the only survivor of the medieval town walls. The most ancient of the many historic and pre-historic sites in nearby Boyne Valley is Newgrange, the oldest man-made structure in Europe, even older than the pyramids and well before the time of my novel.
