Shers on Irish FM radio - Murder On the Rocks!

What fun to be asked to do this radio interview with CRY 104 FM in County Cork while I plugged a murder mystery I'd written and set in Youghal, Ireland.

Murder On The Rocks!
 is the first of what has eventually turned into a 3-part series, entitled: A Felly van Vliet series, named after its protagonist.
Airtime with this County Cork DJ - Stan Notte - ended up with him not only asking about why I'd based this first work in the sleepy little Irish harbour town of Youghal, but also a bit about the writing process and my background as well.
Have a listen to this live broadcast. As the Irish say, it was great craic!

Sleep Well, Little One

Sleep well, little one…. they married too soon when sweet waters babbled and promises bloomed, too young to care for what life had in store for a bearded young fool and the wildling adored.
They lived on a prayer that took wing to their lives until bad feather days began moulting from strife. You came to greet them when they were half-done and no longer living on diets of song.
They were too young to value what wisdom had learned, how when boredom sets in it's so easily turned, as chance can spin time into new garments worn and the wildling's no longer when a young beard is shorn.
They knew nothing of this, the secrets of days, and both led their wills through a darkening maze, losing their way and losing their child to what they only knew later would make life worthwhile.
