Read full description of the books Tales From the Glades of Ballymore:In the tradition of Wind In The Willows comes a new family classic — Tales From The Glades Of Ballymore. The setting for the book is the countryside surrounding a large pond in Ireland. The year is 1891. The animal residents have the ability to speak and have created a self-sustaining community that has existed for many years. The community’s success is rooted in the caring and sharing they extend to each other.
You are most welcome to join them as they help each other through their adventures — big and small. There is Bartholomew, the wise old owl, who watches over everyone including:
Wilde and Wilder Weasel, the mischievous, unofficial “security guards”;
Branna, the brave and spunky bluebird;
Finn Frog whose middle name is “Adventure”;
Grenby, the eccentric, weather forecasting ground hog;
The chipmunks who seem to attract trouble wherever they go;
The “Pond Creature”; and many more.
This is a heartwarming, humorous, and adventurous book of intertwined tales with an underlying theme of “The Golden Rule”. The book is intended for 8-10 year olds but can be appreciated by anyone - young or old. The tales are further enhanced the by beautiful full-color illustrations.
Read information about the author
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to write a children's book. As with most of us, I never had enough time. When I retired from my engineering career, that excuse evaporated.
2012 was the right time, and Tales From The Glades Of Ballymore became a reality as an eBook.
Tales From The Glades Of Ballymore is a family-friendly book. Although the animals have many adventures, there is no violence. It is heart-warming and humorous. The beautiful illustrations by Karen Ohlinger help bring it to life. The underlying theme of the book is The 'Golden Rule'. There aren't many books like this one written today.
I released my second book at the end of 2012. This one, Ballymore Adventures, Book 1, also features the animals of Ballymore. Although, it is a story-book written for young children.
Next came a fantasy short-story for adults, Tuatha De Danaan. Set in Western Ireland in the late 1800s, it is a story of a fateful night of interaction between a villager and the Otherworld.
Recently, I released another collection of short-stories about Ballymore, Ballymore Bedtime Tales. This book is for 5-9 year olds.
I am now working on a followup to Tales From The Glades Of Ballymore from my home in the Netherlands.
Cooking has also become a serious hobby of mine, and when I'm not writing, I can frequently be found in the kitchen.
I appreciate your interest and hope you choose to read one of my books. I hope it brings some joy to your life and the lives of your loved ones.
