For the last 15 years or so, I’ve lived in the world-famous tourist site of Blarney, Co, Cork, Ireland and ‘yes,’ I’ve kissed the Blarney Stone and ‘no’ it hasn’t helped or taken from the writing.
In previous life-forms I’ve trained and worked at teaching, partially trained as an accountant, counselling, meditating, relaxation techniques and mediating. Why the long list? Don't know the answer - just have many interests. perhaps These interests and training have leant a flavour to the subsequent writing.
