Genre: Literary Fiction
Hovis Monk had been deceived. Perhaps he always had been. His comfortable life in the Snowdonian bubble, provided by The Blue Yonder Mining Company, was ending.
As his world implodes Hovis spins into a realm of inner and outer realities, chance occurrences, memories, music, luck and laughter.
This story describes the reunion of Hovis with his old Paisley Underground band, a little known group called The Festers, and his struggles with a very special Flame Red Time Trialing Onesey…..

I began writing these existential stories because they
needed air and because I was sick to death of people being lauded for writing
trivial rubbish.  It’s easy to write nice, acceptable TV bookclub bodice
rippers, a lot harder to tell the truth.
My stories scrape the scrotum of life’s existence and laugh
at despair.  There is no room in my books for any Goo Goo Muck, just
straight up Rock n Roll.
So read at your peril…

glow
in night’s depth as the stars echo the rhythm of my heart
my
insides sigh and expand in delight
harmonious
blend as our lives
circle
the melody

Dancing to an Irish Reel or not?

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

 

 

Twenty five year old Hailey Crossan takes a trip to Ireland during a sabbatical from her job in the LA record business. While there, she’s offered a job too good to turn down, so she stays.
Although Hailey works in Galway, she lives in the countryside of Connemara, a rural area famous for its Irish traditional music.  When Hailey meets local musician, Liam Hennessey, a confusing relationship begins, which Hailey thinks is the result of differing cultures, for Liam is married to the music, and so unbalanced at the prospect of love, he won’t come closer nor completely go away.
And so begins the dance of attraction that Hailey struggles to decipher. Thankfully, a handful of vibrant local friends come to her aid, and Hailey learns to love a land and its people, both with more charm than she ever imagined.
 
Claire Fullerton is an award winning essayist, a magazine contributor, a former newspaper columnist, and a four time contributor to the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book series. She hails from Memphis, Tn. and now lives in Malibu California. “Dancing to an Irish Reel” is her second novel.
