The author is Michael Gillespie. He is in his sixties and is married with four of a family but is now divorced. He lives by himself in Derry in N. Ireland and outside of writing his interests are gardening, reading, walking, interior design and charity work
He has already published a successful novel with Authorhouse Titled ---THE WAY IRELAND OUGHT TO BE – This novel was set in a psychiatric clinic in Belfast and deals with the writing of The National Government of Ireland, which the author considers to be central to finding a genuine and lasting peace in Ireland.
It may be felt that there is peace in Ireland with the setting up of an assembly and with the Good Friday Agreement. The author disagrees and sees the peace in N. Ireland as bogus. The social sickness of sectarianism dominates Ireland (all of it)
In taking up writing and leaving teaching his intention was to write a trilogy of novels on the Irish problem. THE RAPE OF VIRGIN MUNCHINDUN is the second novel of the trilogy. This novel deals with sectarianism. The third novel of the trilogy will be called –SIZE MATTERS – and will deal with the Irish problem in a humorous way.
As well as writing novels the author maintains an extensive blog on the Irish problem at: - www.blogstoday.co.uk/irishproblemsolved.blog which is read as far afield as California.
He also contributes letters to the national and local press in Ireland on politics and education.
