Famous Beresford Ghost Story (with introduction)

Making memories

Since my previous blog post was about Curraghmore, I thought I would share with you a very popular Beresford Ghost Story for upcoming Halloween. It came out, however, that I have no spooky ghastly photos of Curraghmore House.  I decided to write an illustrated introduction about another place just behind the wall from the Curraghmore estate – the Mayfield House, Portlaw, of which I have plenty of spooky looking pictures, and the most important, a spooky true story.

                                                                         Introduction

Since the ancient Rhododendron tree fell down during the hurricane Ophelia in autumn 2016, the only way to get to the Mayfield house is to crawl through under the tree trunk…

… which I did…

Dr. Seuss

lifecanbebeautiful

Dr Seuss is one talented author!! I love his style and humour….what I love the most about him is there is always a hidden bigger meaning behind his writing. In such a clever creative way it gets both young and older audiences thinking.

My favourite film of all time by Dr. Seuss has to be The Cat in the Hat! Jam packed full with humour from the start,  this film is brilliantly smart! Guaranteed this film will leave you feeling cheery and happy! If you haven’t already, I suggest you give this film a watch! You will not be disappointed.

Below are a few of my fave quotes from the film and Dr. Seuss.

Today you are You, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is Youer than You.

Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get…

The Filth: The Explosive Inside Story of Scotland Yard’s Top Undercover Cop

bookzone

This was a very enjoyable and informative read about a boy who grows up wanting to be a Metropolitan cop with an eye towards becoming an elite detective with Scotland Yard. It follows along his journey, first showing how his father was a shining example for him, being a medic and green beret in the royal marines who helped guide his path. He applied and was accepted at age 16 for training to be a Met cop. His only disappointment was that he had to spend an extra year doing schoolwork to take that path. He wasn’t all that fond of schoolwork and really wanted to get on with real life stuff, but if that’s what he had to do, he guessed he’d have to put up with it. He did well and became the youngest new copper. He was assigned an experienced partner to show him the ropes for…

“The American Writer’s Museum has the distinction of being the first, and only, museum of its kind, dedicated to honoring and promoting American authors,” board member Leigh Conant said.

Conant added, “We anticipate that a minimum of 100,000 people will visit the AWM annually, experiencing great literature and its authors in a variety of ways.”

Among the galleries will be one called “Word Play.” It’ll have interactive tabletop consoles that encourage visitors to experiment with words and even make up words and meanings.

There’ll also be “The Mind of a Writer Gallery.” It will include a giant roll of paper suspended from the ceiling to an easel. Every day, museum staff will start a story by writing a single sentence on the paper and visitors will be able to add to it using their own writing flare.

#Authors – Dragons on the Loose By D.Wallace Peach

Amazon Global Link

Dragons are on the loose!

My journey from traditional publishing to indie publishing is complete with the release of my last 4 books, a quartet set in a land of dragons and skyriders, mountain meadows and outland seas. The Moons mark the passage of the seasons in the books and here on my blog.

The Blurb-ish

Amazon Global Link

Amazon Global Link

In the distant mountains of the Mirror, exiled skyriders fly dragons in the old Way, merged in flesh, blood, and bone. Twenty years past, they fought for the freedom of the valley’s dragons … and lost.

Thus begins the epic adventure that stretches from the quaint village of Taran Leigh and the mountains of the Mirror to the Anghard Archipelago in the western sea. Welcome to a world where wealth and power rule, fear is the weapon of choice, and cruelty is the cost of a pocket of gold. It’s a world that forces a choice — indifference, complicity, or defiance.

Cover Blind - low res

The dragons of land and sea, souls of grace and beauty, hang in the balance. Will they descend into howling violence, lost to the terror and pain inflicted upon them by their tormentors? Or will they fly free, the creatures they were born to be? With each book, the stakes rise and far more than the dragon soul lies at risk.

“The chest rose above his head, long neck curving, aquamarine eyes fracturing the sunlight. This dragon’s scale gleamed blue and gray, sea-shaded with crescents of curling white waves. The webbed wings shone seafoam blue with ribbons of coral and the mottled green of seaweed. Kearney smiled. If the sea glimmered like this dragon, he’d have become a sailor.” – Mor Kearney, Clan Lord of Loughran.

Myths of the Mirror (Book 1):

Imprisoned in the stone lair, the captive dragons beat webbed wings and thrash serpentine tails. They tear their flesh and batter their bodies against the black bars of their cells, iron grating against iron. The once peaceful creatures howl, tormented by spine and spur, their fury matched only by their despair.

Treasa, the daughter of exiles, seeks the secrets of a hidden past and a father she never knew. Gifted with visions, she glimpses pieces of years long lost and a veiled future that only raises more questions. The dragons visit her dreams, laden with contradictions that tear at her heart — for one day she sails in unfettered flight, her arms thrown wide, and the next she writhes in tortured darkness, desperate to be free.

The lair’s black-garbed riders sense the dragons’ growing savagery. Yet Conall longs to grasp their power, to subdue them and soar, and he will endure the reek, filth, and terror of the lair to earn his right to fly. With a heart encased in steel, he masters the weapons of compliance to see his will done. At the cost of the woman he loves.

Then, a curved talon rends flesh and dragon scale, rattling against white ribs. Blood falls like rain and the world shifts. Treasa and Conall must decide who they are and what they stand for. Thus, the battle for the dragon soul begins again. Alliances form, old myths are revealed, and new myths are born.

Thanks again, my friends, for helping with the covers!

Now, back to writing…🙂
