Wicklow Mountains


For those of you who are reading The Light-Bearer's Daughter, here are a few pics of the hills through which Dana trekked. These are of the area around Ballybraid and Mullaghcor which I was hillwalking yesterday. There are more photos of the mountains in the archives, if you want to trawl through them. And I'll be posting shots of Lugnaquillia and Glendalough and such in the near future. Now back to the grant applications which I am complaining about below.

This gives a better visual of what Dana has endure while on her quest.
By the way, I couldn't put the book down. It went every where I went. I felt as if I was on the quest with Dana.
Thank you for writing such a great book. Mary

Oh thank you for such kind words. I'm really glad you enjoyed the book. I shall post some more photos of the mountains as these were lower hills compared to what Dana had to traverse!

I can't wait! (For the photos) You can't find good quality pictures that capture so much beauty in one take anywhere! This is just amazing.. And I agree with "anonymous", the book is amazing!

I've read your book The Singing Stone so many times, my book is falling apart. I think it is just super. To bad its listed as a 9-12 year old read. I am 51 and I started reading it about 10 years ago. I know it off by heart. I can hardly wait to get more of your books. I wish they wouldn't rate them for a certain age group. Makes me feel kinda funny to be reading "kids" books. The way I figure, if they entertain you, they are ageless. Thanks so much.

So glad you like The Singing Stone and I hope you enjoy The Chronicles of Faerie as much! Re the age categories, I couldn't agree with you more. I think publishers, bookstores, and many reviewers need to put things into neat little boxes. Luckily most readers do not.
