My name is Arthur Russell and I have just published my first book, and am just realizing the potential of the Internet to contact others with similar interests. By profession I am an Agriculturalist who has worked internationally; with a deep interest in matters historical.
My historical fiction book 'Morgallion' is set in 14th century Ireland at the time of the Bruce Invasion (1315 AD). The research and writing was done over fifteen years and hopefully puts "flesh on bones" in describing that period.
I am looking forward to interacting with others who are interested in this genre. I just learning the ways of this IT medium.
