* * * * BARRY FITZGERALD * * * *

Tell us a little about yourself and your background? I’m an author based in the most beautiful quarter of the Atlantic Way on the west coast of Ireland. A land with a living abundance of folklore and mythology in which I thrive. I’ve just finished my tenth book and final installment of an amazing trilogy which begins in Ireland before taking the reader to other parts of the planet which I’ve visited whilst starring in an American TV show up until October 2011. I find I resonate better in nature and the west coast of Ireland offers an enormous reservoir of stimulating landscapes which I openly abuse in my drive to harness my vision and deliver it onto paper.

What are your ambitions for your writing career? There are stories which need to be told, I open myself to channel those stories and as long as I’m alive I will write and it would be nice to see one of those works appreciated through the medium of tv though its not a driving force. I find writing can be a liberating experience and a quite mind is priceless.

What are you working on at the minute? I’m currently working on prequel to my trilogy. All three books have been known as possessing a different voice and this book is no different as it relates to a world unknown to us bar a very few.

Do you write every day, 5 days a week or as and when? No not at all, I write until that particular part of the story is done. This can be a day, a week a month. I don’t have a set pattern as this would not work with me at all.

If this book is part of a series, tell us a little about it? The book I’m currently working on is part of ‘The Council of Three’ series. The story delves into Irish folklore and the truths that hide therein. There is no smoke without fire and as the series continues we are taken on a roller-coaster of life and death into all aspects of the Irish mythology before being introduced to the global arena and the unique similarities our cultures share within this platform introducing the reader to a paradigm shift that will alter their perceptions.

How are you publishing this book and why? (*e.g. Indie, traditional or both) I self publish because some time ago I provided a piece of work to a publisher who wanted to take it to print. The amounts of hoops I had to jump through I felt would have resulted in a irreversible destruction of the story delivery and I simply could not allow this to happen. 

Where can you see yourself in 5 years time? Abducted by aliens šŸ˜

If you want to check out Barry's work (both his fiction and his research you can go to his WEBSITE, FACEBOOK , TWITTER or GOODREADS.
Today marks the launch of FRACTURE, the final installment in The Council of Three novella series.  If you haven't already ready started this series I suggest you get to Amazon and start.  I personally rated it 5*****.  If you love Irish Lore you will love this series with its contemporary twist.
