"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

The "secret" castle I always visit at Ballyvaughan

Fungi, the famous dolphin of Dingle Bay.

This being the first anniversary of Jewel's arrival, here's a quick trip down memory lane: Meet Jewel!

Can't swill Guinness till evening, I'm afraid, I must keep a clear head. I'll be participating in an economic recovery summit in one of my district towns, along with our U.S. Congressman, our State Senator, another State Representative, and many local officials.
