A self-designated Irish philosopher of the natural kind; a self-originator
who enjoys poetically expressing his ideas in the written word.
Lived and studied for 13 years in the Far East and 6 in the Middle East.
Now living on his native isle of Éire.
“Two roads (liberated publishing versus constrained publishing) diverged in a wood,
and I (RmS) ~ I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
Salutation ~ for he believes his best originality is always yet to come!
“Some work of noble note, may yet be done.”
Alfred Lord, Tennyson
“I am persistent in my conversations with places of place Past;
with places of place Present; with places of place Future,
and with places of place Universe.” RmS
From Ireland: a mystical and beautiful isle of the north eastern Atlantic Ocean renowned for its mighty storytellers comes
a collection of ten original long stories for children aged 8-12 their parents, grandparents, and their teachers.
These are imaginary stories told by an imaginary schoolteacher to imaginary students in an imaginary Irish countryside primary school.
Principal, Declan McGrath is highly respected by parents and greatly loved by his students not alone for the way he admirably
teaches them but also for the marvellous lively-paced contemporary narratives he shares with them.
In his voice is found a lovely natural rhythm and rhyme that is pure music to the ears of his students.
Although the stories have a local Irish setting or bearing they are not parochial; far from it
for they aspire to and deal with universal themes and concerns in a way that a reader
in any part of the world will be able to relate to and enjoy.
Note: Will be avialable from Amazon by mid-November 2016
