Here's the link to my interview on WAYN Radio, the student radio station of Wayn State University, Detroit. You get to listen to some beautiful Hindi tunes before I chat away about books, writing, life, the universe and everything: And then you hear some lively songs from the Irish-Canadian group The Irish Rovers and a tune from the American Celtic group Gaelic Storm. Radhika, the interviewer, read my books in her teens and never forgot me. I love my readers!

A Little Story About My Cat

I mentioned on my other blog that my little cat Emma died on St Patrick's Day and that I would write about her when I was ready. As it turns out, my publishers were interested in the story - sad but also magical - and they have put it up on their Heal Your Life website. (Also on their HealYourLife Facebook page where it got hundreds of likes and comments.) You go to and wait for it to appear in the Featured Articles section at the top. Eventually it will take its place below. I'm still grieving that she is gone. It's worse at night when I think to call her in and she isn't there. Impermanence. One of the hardest facts of life.

US College Radio Interview!

Out of the blue, I was contacted by Radhika of the student-run radio station of Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan. She's a fan of the Chronicles of Faerie and asked if she could interview me about those books and also my new work, People of the Great Journey. I said fine and we had a great chat. The interview airs today on at 7:10 pm eastern standard time, 4:10 pm pacific time, and 12:10 am (just past midnight) in Ireland and the UK. Radhika's programme is a mix of international music and book reviews and, of course, occasional interviews. There will be a podcast later on in the week. I'll post the link to that when it's up. Listening to the station yesterday, I really enjoyed it.
