Pat McNamara about this book: Hi, thanks for your interest in what I hope to be the first of many self-published fiction novels. I always wanted to try my hand at writing and recently I was gifted the time to do so, thus I've spent the last 10 months working toward holding my very own printed novel. It wasn't an easy challenge, but I'm glad I did now as it feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. All my life, I have been bothered - maybe you are too? Mainly due to the fact that the world is rife with war, starvation and hatred, and there's no-denying that. Why? Certain psychological phenomenons have been allowed to evolve alongside economics and culture, and are now recognized as the norm, much to the disappointment of the needy and our fellow creatures.
My book is a unique prod at the human race as seen from the eyes of our fellow beings, thus allowing me to prod especially hard at the many illogical delusions that plague our existence. I endeavor to rattle the reader's mind and force them think about the issues they spend most of their lives avoiding. The story is deliberately written to suit both young teens and adults alike, but more suited to a male audience. Historical and nature themes are Irish in origin and will be recognized by Irish nationals at home and abroad. Rather than identifying Ireland as the setting, I've created a fictional nation that resembles it, thus maintaining applicability with regards the problems of many nations. Suitable for anyone with a conscience, especially those that are morally outraged at certain aspects of modern society and that number is steadily on the rise!
