Moonrise Over Mweelin

By | About Me, Blog | 2 Comments

I just spent a few days cycling the Newport to Achill Island Greenway (Co. Mayo). The weather forecast looked good so myself and a friend piled our bikes into the back of a car and headed off. The weather was warm and sunny, and the scenery was truly spectacular. Here are a few photos of the trip.

Check out moonrise over Mweelin. We were sitting outside a county pub having a well-earned pint when a full moon started to rise over the crest of the mountain. It’s was an amazing sight, and one I had never seen before. 

Achill is an island very close to the mainland and accessed by a short bridge, Achill Sound. The tidal streams here can be quite dangerous as the Atlantic rushes in through a narrow channel.

Mullrany strand is a thing of beauty, with nothing on it only a few cows. I’ve no idea what they were doing there, they probably didn’t know themselves.

I’ve spent many years developing internet companies while pursuing a passion for the creative process. Science fiction writing is one of them.

My debut novel, FUSION was published in March 2015 and follows the exploits of Charles Gardner and Madelaine Duchamp as they try to foil a plot to destroy the massive ITER fusion reactor, while it prepares for activation. Pursued by killers and hunted by deadly micro-drones, it’s a fast paced techno-thriller.

The new novel, Colony One Mars, is set three years after the last message from Earth’s first colony on Mars. The story follows Dr. Jann Malbec and her fellow crew as they set off to the red planet to investigate what happened at Colony One. But, what they uncover threatens the future existence of the entire human race.
