of incarceration and hopelessness, of nursing raging grievances, hadn’t
lessened the pious fervor and deeply-held beliefs. Thirty-six interminable
months of imprisonment and deprivation had served only to deepen his
determination to rid the land of those to whom he owed his life. Those without

Top Ten List
1) Anthing to do with animals, especially dogs and horses. My favorite horse breed is the Friesian, which is why I put one in my novels. I also own two rescue dogs and support many animal charities.
2) Singing, especially folk-style songs. I also sing in my local church choir.
4) Dragons and (I have to admit!) unicorns. I have collected figurines and statues of dragons and unicorns since I was small and have a vast collection, some of which live outdoors. But I donâ€™t like â€œtweeâ€, only ones that look like they could be real.
5) Reading, especially fantasy and sci-fi.
6) Country walks.
7)All wildlife, especially butterflies. I used to breed and release UK varieties, and belong to the Butterfly Conservation Society.
8) Did I mention chocolate?
9) Spending time with family members.
10) Playing my bodhran (Irish drum). I canâ€™t read music so decided to take up drumming instead! Itâ€™s fun and very theraputic.
