Well PenelopeÂ´s Route is out and about now and I am thrilled that I am getting good and positive feedback from those who have read it already.
The fundraiser is also going well, we are halfway there and now I have to really push and remind everyone the importance of a Spanish publication for the lovely folk who helped me along the way. See details on the website www.penelopes-route.com.
You can also buy a book by pressing the BUY NOW button which will take you to the Troubadour Bookshop!
I can sell direct to anyone who lives in Spain to avoid postage costs from Britain. Get in touch with me if you live in Spain and want to buy a book direct. [email protected]
Finally, if you want to know more about how this idea and this book came into being, listen to this link from Talk Radio Europe.

If you enjoy cultural history, armchair travel or a smattering of Irish wit, you will not be disappointed by this account of a courageous adventure on horseback through Andalusia.
The humanity, determination and guts of the author will carry you along to the journey’s end.

Penelope's Route is a wonderful glimpse into the life of an author who has clearly dedicated her life to horses and adventures. From hypothermia, to near misses on precipitous mountain paths and the stoically ignored "chorizo finger", Penelope’s Route is a great choice for fans of equine-adventure. As well as the twists and turns of her challenging journey on horseback, the book also provides a colourful insight into Andalucían life and the history of the region, not to mention the many characters (and all too often guardian angels!) the author meets along her way.

Irish but lived all over the place for work. Now settled in Southern Spain in a pretty village with three horses, a dog, a cat and a lot of wonderful Spanish friends.
