Dead Bird in the Weeds: A Sneak Peek

As you all know, my novel Dead Bird in the Weeds is being rereleased in an easier-to-read format. One thing you may not know is that it's going to have a great new cover. So, without further ado . . . the unveiling of Dead Bird in the Weeds. . . .

From the back cover:

Birds no longer live in the trees.
They lie dead in the weeds.

According to ancient Irish tradition, the wren would command the birds and the king would become the pauper for one day. For life to be restored to its natural state, the wren must be hunted and slain.

Dead Bird in the Weeds relates the tale of trodden people rising as wrens to win freedom from the tyranny of England during the 1798 rebellion in Ireland.

This is the story of one such wren named Aisling Doran, a peasant in Wexford, Ireland. Compelled by the murder of her father, the loss of her faith, and the yearning of her being to end the anguish she must endure, this daring young woman joins the revolutionary United Irishmen. Throughout the fields, hills, meadows, and mountains, she and her family wage war for liberty.

During this struggle for independence, Aisling discovers the courage to love, to die, and most important, to live.

As always, I love to hear from you. If you’re in the cyber-neighborhood, drop me a line.

In the meantime, keep writing, reading, and smiling.
It’s contagious.
