The Emerald Isle

The Mountains of County Clare

I am long overdue for a thank you post to all of you who supported my Kickstarter campaign and my research trip to Ireland. I spend three wonderful weeks there in March. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I achieved all of my research goals and then some while I was there. A few plot knots even got worked out, serendipitously.

Anyone who has traveled to Ireland will tell you how gorgeous the countryside is and that is certainly true. But I will tell you that I fell in love with the people even more so. You will not find a more generous, gregarious, humor-filled group of people anywhere. I wish there was some way for you to experience the warmth of the Irish from this blog, but I believe you’ll just have to go there yourself. Until then, enjoy a little Irish vacation at your desk.
