Romancing Charlotte

As well as being a member of Boyne Writers Group I'm also a member of LitLab which is a Cavan/Meath writers group which was started in 2006 by Meath and Cavan Arts Offices to mentor and encourage writers in the two counties.

The group has prospered and meet fortnightly in Bailieborough. Over the last few years one member, Pat Devaney who has an impressive list of publications to his credit, brought for criticism some episodes of a series of his which was being published in a monthly Irish magazine.

The serial has concluded and Pat has had it published as a novel under a pen name, Colin Scott. It is available as an e-book or paperback from Authorhouse and from Amazon.

This is how Pat describes the book:

Set in Post-Celtic-Tiger Ireland, this novel follows the efforts of PJ, a returned Yank, to win the love of Charlotte, attractive English-born widow of Sir William Herbert and owner of the local Big House. Differences of religion and class would seem to doom the romance but the growing relationship between PJ's son and Charlotte's daughter and a shared interest in saving a local bog from illegal turf cutters dramatically alter the situation.
