One Irish autumn evening, in a little picturesque train station, I noticed a graceful young woman sitting alone;
she looked to be waiting for someone to arrive.
Over the next week I re-visited the station on five occasions to photograph it in different light.
The woman was there every time, still waiting.
On the day I was to leave we somehow found ourselves closer to each other.
She smiled at me, warmly. I smiled back.
Our eyes held in a sort of silent conversation.
She leaned closer, like she was about to talk to me, maybe tell me something.
But suddenly her head dropped, she turned away.
I sensed that she was waiting for a dream, a dream that would never show up.
But what if, I thought, what if that dream . . .
. . . This enigmatic woman inspired this 400-page novel. She’s too mysterious to be the main character, at first. So I wrote a bigger story around a driven man, and married the two.
It’s a story about a passionate search for freedom, sanity, and maybe love.
Critics said: ‘Intense’, ‘Unpredictable’, ‘Probably the best two final chapters I’ve read’.
Jack Engelhard (author, Indecent Proposal) said: ‘Epic, compelling! I could neither wait for nor predict the sublime outcome.’
