Beautiful Mona …

Enjoyed the wonderful wildlife and fauna paintings by local artist, Charles Tunnicliffe (who illustrated Tarka the Otter) plus some wonderful photographs of Holyhead, past and present, at the Brick Shed Gallery at the Breakwater Country Park this weekend. Top marks to everyone involved in the project, it’s hardly recognisable as the same abandoned old quarry I played in as a child!

Welsh Valentines Day – 25th January

Last weekend (25th Jan) was St Dwynen’s day, celebrated as the saint’s day of lovers in Wales. http://bit.ly/1emy7Go – the site of the chapel set up in St Dwynen’s name is the main location for my novel, Closure. Llanddwyn Island is a headland, rather than island, that juts out into the Menai Straits opposite Caernarfon. As well as the ruins of the chapel, there are celtic crosses, pilot boat cottages and lots of mysterious lumps and bumps. Well worth a visit. And as you can see from the cover, it was the inspiration for the location of my second published novel, Closure, available as Kindle, paperback or audiobook. http://amzn.to/1yrggrl
