I often take inspiration for my writing from personal experience and those special moments of my childhood. One of those special moments was a meal of corn beef and boiled cabbage. I admit the cabbage was an acquired taste but I have a passion about this heritage and I have passed it on to my children.
There are many conflicts that have gone on in Ireland, not the least of which is known as The Troubles.
This is a tale of which I have not written. Perhaps I have found a new story to tell.
I know of authors who have written successful historical fiction about Latvian injustices and those children sent from Europe to Canada to work on farms. What a wonderful way to teach our children about from where they come.
