Eamonn Griffin – Historical Fiction [Author Interview]

This week sees an interview with Eamonn Griffin, a professional writer who has published two novels, as well as writing for other people.

In the long hot summer of 1642 he is forced to leave home because his sister has discovered that he is having an affair with his eldest brother's wife to be.
