A Journey into Ireland's Literary Revival

My second book with Roaring Forties Press is out. I'm thrilled with how good the layout is and am very thankful to everyone who worked on it. I am also gratified that it has gotten some good press so far. It was mentioned in Jan Gardner's Shelf Life column in the Boston Globe:

I was also interviewd by Debra Lawless for the Cape Cod Chronicle in advance of a book event in Chatham. There is more information on book events at I'm also having my website redesigned and will let you all know when it is up and live. The early drafts look really great.

In other news, my third column for Automotive Traveler is online now at I just submitted the fourth one, following John Steinbeck's Travels with Charley, and am also working on some stuff for National Geographic Traveler, Backpacker, and Draft. Stay tuned.

Thank you all for reading,
