Secrets of the Stones

Am in the midst of watching a great archaeology program about Ireland's megalithic and other ancient stone monuments! Excellent visuals of carvings, plus the most spectacular aerial shots of earthworks at Carrowmore, Tara, Newgrange, and Knowth. I wish they'd spent a little more time explaining the science of geophysics, but maybe that's just me!

Hope you'll grab a trowel to pitch in and have fun exploring and excavating this site. I'm hoping we can use this space to start conversations about a host of different topics:
  • news of archaeological discoveries made in Irish bogs and elsewhere
  • the latest cutting-edge ideas in forensic science
  • other fascinating information we happen to stumble across during the course of doing research
  • musings on the creative process and/or the world of publishing
  • new book reviews and interviews people might enjoy reading
  • what we're currently reading/viewing -- books, magazine articles, television, movies
  • pictures of the people and the places that inspire our stories
  • announcements of upcoming book signings and other events of interest
I'm hoping that visitors will feel free to post their own interesting discoveries and observations.

FALSE MERMAID, the third novel in the Nora Gavin/Cormac Maguire series, will be on bookstore shelves in March 2010. Meanwhile, I'm already hard at work on Book #4, and will keep everyone updated here.

Thanks for stopping by!
