Got your passport ready?

Yes, I do have my passport ready!

In fact, I knew exactly which drawer of my desk to find it in since I had to use it last June in order to go on my trip to Israel — but that is another story that I will tell on another day.  I promise!  (Soon!)

This time, though, I’m headed to Ireland again!  I’m going to be doing some research in Galway and Clifden, taking in the sites with the goal of later translating them to paper.  I’m going to be staying with a dear friend of mine, Bernadette, and will get a chance to visit with her and her family.  And I will finally get to meet Leonard in person rather than just waving to him on Skype.

Clifden, County Galway, Ireland

If you think of me, please pray that I will be blessed with safe travels, good weather, and find the information I am seeking to help make my historical details as accurate as possible.  I’m working on a scenario for a story, and I would like to make sure I have it correct.  (Just like with my Shadowcreek Chronicles…  I write better about someplace after I’ve been able to see it.)  I was able to collect some information when I went to the JFK Library in Boston, but now I hope to get a glimpse of the Irish side of things during that time period.

I had a chance to talk with Melanie Jeschke after the Capital Christian Writers meeting last week.  Melanie is the author of The Oxford Chronicles, which are predominantly set in England but have a bit of Paris thrown in the mix as well, and she, too, has visited the places she wrote about.  I enjoy the details in her stories and hope (if this story ever makes it into print) that my readers will enjoy the authenticity of the descriptions and the accuracy of the history.  That’s what makes it fun.

When I get back from my trip, I’ll be sure to post some photos so you can see where I’ve been.  Thanks for keeping me in your prayers!
