When I was a child, I dreamt of a vast library, where I could read anything ever written. When I learned that the Library of Alexandria had been destroyed in ancient times, I felt a poignant loss to all of mankind. What can I say? I am an eternal bibliophile!

Don’t miss information on Celtic myth and history, as well as practical travel planning tips, and hidden places, in my travel books. And watch out for my upcoming historical fantasy novel, Legacy of Hunger!
