Today on #IrishWritersWed I am joined by author Olive Collins as she takes us all on a fascinating journey, with a post entitled 'Jamaica and The Irish Connection'

Spending this Saturday toying with ideas for Book 3 and listening to music and reading articles from the 1960's, possibly its not far back enough to qualify as historical however I love how music reflects the atmosphere of the time. I found this song on youtube and the characters are jumping through the screen at me.

I'll give the guy in the music video the name Chad and perplexed parents who ask him about a haircut.

Enjoy your weekend, Chad.

Chuffed that Sue Leonard selected my novel to review in Irish Literary Debuts this year in Books Ireland. I'm tickled nicely that I'm sharing the podium with Orla McAlinden & Graham Norton.
